Recently I changed my OS from Windows 10 to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
After installing Ubuntu on SSD disk and installing other drivers, everything was well. But when I tried to access my files on HDD hard drive these things happend:
In windows HDD disk had 2 partitions A, E.
In Ubuntu Partition A is mounted well!
But I can't mount Partition E.
Also about 200 Gb of HDD disk is unallocated!
Here is my Hard Drives Info:
sda 931.5G ├─sda1 ntfs Projects 244.1G /media/mehdi/Projects ├─sda2 195.3G └─sda3 ntfs Other Files 492.1G nvme0n1 119.2G ├─nvme0n1p1 vfat 512M /boot/efi └─nvme0n1p2 ext4 118.8G /
As you can see
sda1 is mounted but
sda3 is not.
I tried ntfsfix to fix sda3, result is:
Mounting volume... OK Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully. Checking the alternate boot sector... OK NTFS volume version is 3.1. NTFS partition /dev/sda3 was processed successfully.
After running command
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /media/mehdi/Files :
ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error Failed to calculate free MFT records: Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation for more details.
