    Hello. I am very concern

    I did something stupid I think, I put installing mint alongside windows, thats ok, but I have 4 partions from one hard drive and 1 tb, on which I have 1 tb of information and on others I have 200 gb full of important info, thing is I did choose where to put the partition, so I led 921 gb on the left size and 79 gb on the other side. WOuld this delete my information? Now I am on installation step, nothing to do know? Did I just erased all my info or kill my partition? What the *LANGUAGE REMOVED* just happent?

    First off, I removed your cursing. Foul language is not allowed on the forums and you have been given one warning.

    Now, can you calm down and explain this a little better. A screen shot of Gparted would be a good start. From what you are saying:
    1. HDD is 1 TB.
    2. Partitions are as follows:
    A.) 921 gb
    C.) 79 gb
    D.) UNKNOWN.
    Have you actually committed the changes? Clicked APPLY? If not, chances are your HDD is untouched.

    Didn't you back-up your important files?

    What version of Windows?

    What partitioning tool?

    If you chose "install along side Windows" did you include the important data in the Windows partition?
