I receive the below error message when I try to access the Windows drive on my Windows 10 computer from Ubuntu Desktop running on a USB Flash Drive. I can access all other local drives, just not the Windows drive. I saw an earlier post about disabling "fast startup" in Windows 8.1, but unfortunately I cannot boot into Windows 10 to do this. That's because, after a Windows update, every time the computer boots into Windows 10, it disables the mouse and keyboard, so I cannot log in. I was attempting to use Ubuntu from the FlashDrive to back up some files before restoring to factory default, because there are some files which i would like to save. Do you have any suggestions on how I might be able to access the Windows drive without having to go into Windows first?

Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
