Hi Guys,
I tried all of the suggestions, but nothing has worked, so I have formatted the hard drive and I am going to install Mint from scratch.

Hi Keith,

Thanks for the reply, but the 500 GB Marks Ubuntu PC is the one I am using (Denoted by the image of a disc platter and arm).  The 500 GB Volume is the SSD denoted by the square icon, this only has SRECYCLE.BIN, System volume information folders and a Pagefile.sys file.  So I am taking it that I cannot access the SSD drive!

If this is the case and everything is lost, then should I just change the NFTS partition to Ext4 and attempt a grub repair?

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your suggestions, I am new to Ubuntu, so how would I copy the data?  From the screenshots you can see the three drives listed, 250Gb Volume, 500GB Volume and Marks Ubuntu PC.
Marks Ubuntu PC (which I assume is the one I am using right now) shows 25 files.
500Gb volume shows three files SRecycle bin, System volume information and Pagefile, so I am assuming my data is in here somewhere, 
If I look in Srecycle bin or System volume it does not show any of my data, so at a lose as to what to do next.

Hi Rich J,
I did not specify NTFS when I originally installed Ubuntu.  I have important documents on this drive that I would like to keep.  I have 3 hard drives on my PC, one 500gb SSD which has Ubuntu installed which is the one with the important data on it, 1 250gb ssd which has Windows 10 installed on it and a regular dard drive that has an old version of Ubuntu on it (Gparted is on this drive and that is how I got the screen shot).
Would I be able to use Gparted to convert the NTFS partition on the 500gb SSD to Ext4? 
Failing that what are my other options?
Many thanks

Hi Everyone,

I have Ubuntu running on my home PC, my better half wanted windows, so I installed a separate SSD and installed windows. Now when I try to boot my buntu SSD it shows a black screen with;

No such partiton
Entering rescue mode
Grub rescue

Then nothing, I went into Gparted and it shows that /dev/sdb1 is ntfs (assuming that is why it isn't booting).  What do I do, do I delete this partition or change it to something else.
Any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks
