I'm guessing you are still running 14.04. Upgrade to 16.04 and you can then grow the filesystem. Or you can boot from a livecd and grow it from there.

comment How to remove file with ????? permission
It looks like on Windows, the files are set not to allow you access to read their permissions.

comment KswapD0 use 100% CPU
That certainly does sound like a bug you should report, but even if all cores are running at 100%, it should not overheat. If it does, your hardware is defective.

comment Steam says drive is not mounted with executive permissions
@Spib, fdisk -l only shows the partition type code, which is used by windows but not linux. Also check dmesg for more detailed error messages after mounting the filesystem.

No; if you want to play Windows only games, you dual boot and run Windows to play those games.

comment Store LiveUSB settings/apps on hard drive?
You need to chroot into the mounted hard disk to install grub manually from the live cd. The real question is what happens when you just try to install Ubuntu normally?

comment Harddrive still available after being unplugged. How is this possible?
It looks like you have actually put files in /media/hakon/0ddde628-b54a-4bb2-9823-b734fe0f78b9/, which is now just a directory on your hard disk and not the external disk, as the disk is not mounted. Reboot without the external drive connected, and you should still see the files.

You will have to be more specific about "grub doesn't work".

comment Is there any way I can fix my corrupted Hard Drive?
@bodhi.zazen, that's not actually true. Even if they are physically bad, drives will remap the logical sector to another one from their spare pool if you write to them, and often times, they aren't physically bad, just corrupt for some reason, such as power failure during write.

comment How to reevaluate clusters marked as bad in Ubuntu?
@ThomasW., actually, you often can, as blocks frequently fail to read simply due to power failure during write, rather than physical damage.
