I have a dual boot but only use the Ubuntu. One of my windows partitions I used to always use to download onto, all of a sudden won't mount. Is there a way to have Ubuntu fix it? thanks OK. I go to the "Files" icon and select "other locations" and every partition I click on will mount. this partition used to mount when I selected it, but now if just takes some time and then says "Unable to Access Location, volume not mounted". All the others mount when clicked on. I just tried the sudo mount and this is what I got can't find in /etc/fstab.

    Please elaborate upon what you are seeing. What leads you to conclude that the partition "won't mount"? Grinding noise? Error message? Flashing lights? Please edit your question to include more information. – user535733 Sep 4 '19 at 12:30
  • What error message do you get when you try to manually sudo mount it? – Jos Sep 4 '19 at 12:30
  • Best not to use NTFS with Linux unless dual booting. Most NTFS repairs like chkdsk or defrag can only be run from Windows or a Windows repair flash drive. – oldfred Sep 4 '19 at 16:24
  • The reason I'm using Ubuntu is because my XP got messed up. So I can't really run XP to fix it. I just wondered if Ubuntu had an equivalent of chkdsk. – P Simdars Sep 4 '19 at 20:12
