I want to partition my hard drive so i can use ubuntu. I know doing so will delete all my data

but i use a CD that came with the computer, i believe it is a recovery CD. and i use it every now and then to return my pc to the condition it was in when i bought it.

can i use this CD to bring back some of the data that was lost?

and do i even need to partition my hard drive so i can use ubuntu?

any comments and advice would be extremely appreciated.

Thank you
