So I was using Windows 10 for almost 3 years. Recently I installed ubuntu using USB bootable device and I selected the option:
Install ubuntu alongside windows 10
It worked like a charm(ONLY FOR 2 DAYS). At the beginning I was able to select which OS i want to use and both windows as well as ubuntu were fine.
Today when I tried to use windows 10 it suddenly showed the error:
A run of the fdisk command gives the output:
Device Start End Sectors Size Type /dev/sda1 2048 534527 532480 260M EFI System /dev/sda2 534528 796671 262144 128M Microsoft reserved /dev/sda3 796672 482149397 481352726 229.5G Microsoft basic data /dev/sda4 763428864 1316388863 552960000 263.7G Microsoft basic data /dev/sda5 1316388864 1910306815 593917952 283.2G Microsoft basic data /dev/sda6 1910308864 1911805951 1497088 731M Windows recovery environment /dev/sda7 1911805952 1953517567 41711616 19.9G Windows recovery environment /dev/sda8 482150400 763428863 281278464 134.1G Linux filesystem Partition table entries are not in disk order.
Even if I try to mount /dev/sda3 nothing happens.
My main problem is I have windows 10 and some important data stored on /dev/sda3, but when I try to open it on ubuntu, nothing happens, all other partitions are working fine and Im also able to access their data.
Im a complete noobie to unix/linux systems and have no understanding how the file system works here, any hint as to how to deal with such problem, also is there any chance that I can get my data back on /dev/sda3.
