This question already has an answer here:
i installed ubuntu 13.04 alongside windows 8 and almost everything works fine (dual boot for both windows 8 & ubuntu 13.04 is working great). but when i try to access my windows 8 partition via ubuntu i get the following error:
Unable to access “371 GB Volume”
Error mounting /dev/sda2 at /media/dan/544A4C7E4A4C5F3C: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda2" "/media/dan/544A4C7E4A4C5F3C"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: Windows is hibernated, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda2': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
- please note that i'm a linux newbie and ubuntu is the first non windows OS i've ever tried. thank you
