One of my drives that used to mount, no longer mounts and if possible, I would like to get my data from the drive as that is where my java projects and other things are.

My current /etc/fstab looks like:

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
#
# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).
#
# <file system> <mount point>   <type>  <options>       <dump>  <pass>
proc            /proc           proc    nodev,noexec,nosuid 0       0
# / was on /dev/sda1 during installation
UUID=3327438c-aa5e-400f-82d1-f45e1797209c /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
# swap was on /dev/sda5 during installation
UUID=ffc7c03a-f85b-477f-8f97-a9879e021783 none            swap    sw              0       0

My /etc/mtab looks like:

/dev/sdc1 / ext4 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
proc /proc proc rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev 0 0

The message I get is as follows: http://prntscr.com/1th87x

System information:

$ uname -a
Linux brksfwr-desktop 3.5.0-17-generic #28-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 9 19:31:23 UTC 2012 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Any help would be appreciated.

The file system is NTFS, so have you done what the message tells you to, i.e. "...run chkdsk /n on Windows, then reboot into Windows twice"? –  mikewhatever Sep 26 '13 at 1:17
    
It's Ubuntu, so how do I run it on Windows when I have no windows systems to run it on. It's an internally mounted drive, not an external drive. –  user196146 Sep 26 '13 at 20:27
    
Not much we can help you with. NTFS is a Windows file system, and you need Wndows to fix its errors. Pull out the HDD, and get hold of a Windows box. –  mikewhatever Sep 27 '13 at 16:31
    
If I had a windows box I could do that, but I don't. That helps me not at all. –  user196146 Sep 27 '13 at 17:22
    
Sorry about that. I am not a magician, just a fellow Ubuntu user, but, perhaps others will have better ideas. Lets wait and see. –  mikewhatever Sep 27 '13 at 17:29

In the end, I installed GParted and just reformatted that one partition that was causing a problem. The rest of the partitions were fine. Now I can use that partition with no problems. It is not a perfect solution, but I had all the code backed up anyway. Lesson for today..... backup, backup, backup and back up frequently.
