On Ubuntu, is there any way to search for files on multiple hard disk partitions at once? I'd like to search the contents of all of my hard disk partitions at the same time.

I have a 320GB hard disk. I only use either ubuntu or kubuntu (12.04 for now). I don't want to use windows or any other dual boot os. And i need only 3 partitions on my hard disk. One for the OS and remaining two for data storage. I don't want to create swap also.
Now can i create all primary partitions on the hard disk. Are there any disadvantages in doing so.
I install ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS on my computer as replacing with windows 8. That time in my computer there are 4 partitions of my hard disk. When I install the ubuntu then it does not show my hard disk partitions and I have some important data in to hard disk partitions. So please tell me the way for getting data from these hard disk partitions.
First time posting after reading the forums for a long time, looking at posts from other HP-suffering would-be Ubuntu users.
I have a HP DV6 laptop with a 750GB HD, Intel i7 and 6GB RAM. I downloaded Ubuntu 64bit and started to install it on my laptop. First issue was that there are 4 primary partitions on the laptop hard disk.
I have accidentally removed two partitions. I installed TestDisk and started Analysing to detect the lost partitions.
the lost partitions are in /dev/sda. my Ubuntu installation and TestDisk of course are also on /dev/sda. I want to recover the whole partitions not copy some data, which means I will have to write a new table. is this ok, both being on the same hard drive?
Hi, I have installed ubuntu 12.04 on a pc formally running XP. The PC has two disk drives. The first was for the operating system and the second with two partitions for my music and photos. Ubuntu does not recognise the second hard disk and Gparted shows it as unallocated. The partitions do not show up. How do allocate and mount the partitions on my second disk.
I have my contents scattered at many drives/partitions/folders on my system.
I am searching for a file search utility for windows 7.
I want a search utility in which I can store multiple search paths/locations once and when I search for something, it should search on all my stored paths and show results.
for search I may give it multiple search items, multiple filters.
GParted detects 12 /sda partitions and a few unallocated partitions on my 16 gig SSD. I have installed ChrUbuntu on this machine a number of times, and I haven't ever "cleanly" installed it (I haven't ever wiped the disk prior to reinstallation) - I suspect that this has something to do with the partitions that are showing up here.
