    How do I look at what's inside my partitions? I got some wasting space but I can't figure out which ones. Would be great if I could see what files are inside (including anything related to booting).

    Only one partition is appearing on my windows 'my computer' screen and on the opensuse I can't look inside them either (but it does detect them).

    If you're really desperate to know why I would possibly want to do this...

    I have (useful) partitions for
    i) boot (grub)
    ii) opensuse
    iii) windows
    iv) windows backup (OEM)

    useless partitions I have

    i) boot (windows / old boot setup...need to figure out which partition this is and delete it - i have 2 200 MB partitions)
    ii) empty space
    iii) remains of a deleted/ignored opensuse install*

    *not complete - I deleted some of the partitions associated with this install
    ** Please note - this setup was not intentional. It's the fix I ended up with when my PC wouldn't boot at all. Spent 4 hours getting around that and this mess, is the result. Would like to tidy it up.

    You can't look inside them how? Why can't you just mount the partitions manually within openSUSE? (I assume windows is ignoring them because they aren't FAT/NTFS)
