    Well running Ubuntu and looking through the on-board file manager won't display your data because it's stored elsewhere through a directory of other Windows 8 folders.
    All I did to find that link was I Googled the error code you provided.
    Also if you go into Ubuntu and navigate to the file manager, do you see something along the lines of Windows or Win 8 on the left pane? Like the Win XP shown in this photo:

    I will check now

    Try accessing the 289GB volume. Let me know if you see about 15 folders, one being "Windows"

    To clarify you go into the Windows folder and all you see is a logs document?
