toshiba portege m100 stopped upgrading from ubuntu 12. to 13.

I have a toshiba portege m100 that I couldn't locate a recovery disk for, so I installed the ubuntu 12.3, and it was working fine. Then, I got a message to upgrade to the 13.04 version, and as it was going thru the process, it stopped and I got a message that it couldn't continue the upgrade. Now, when I log into the the OS, my computer will not boot up to let me go online. What should I do, to reinstall the old 12.3 version? When I tried to reinstall the OS with the disk, it doesn't recognize the disk in the drive. Please help me...thnx much.

Agedu – A Unix utility for tracking down wasted disk space

agedu scans a directory tree and produces reports about how much disk space is used in each directory and subdirectory, and also how that usage of disk space corresponds to files with last-access times a long time ago.
In other words, agedu is a tool you might use to help you free up disk space. It lets you see which directories are taking up the most space, as du does; but unlike du, it also distinguishes between large collections of data which are still in use and ones which have not been accessed in months or years – for instance, large archives downloaded, unpacked, used once, and never cleaned up. Where du helps you find what's using your disk space, agedu helps you find what's wasting your disk space.
