UPDATE: So, I've tried to do the live session thing to reconfigure or erase timeshifht from my HD, but then, there were JUST windows files on my linux HD, I didn't understand so I went to see the partitions on my windows, this is what happened: all my patitions from linux are listed as primary partitions on windows, I don't think this happened before by taking a look at the partition menu on Windows.

So, should I just erase it and install linux again (not a huge deal to me)? And, could someone explain to me why that happened?
I do not have enough experience with dual-boot to explain what you might be seeing, but I did want to mention there is an app on the Mint live session called GParted. With it you can see and format partitions on your hard drive.
