Yesterday, I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on an old HP Pavilion G4 notebook. The HDD had 3 NTFS partitions:
- Windows Loader
- Windows System
The user of the laptop is not sure how to use Ubuntu. She lives in Uruguay and alot of people use Linux with Ubuntu there. Because of this, I want to give her her old NTFS data partition to use it with Linux.
The creation was easy, but if I try to open the partition with the file manager, possibly Nautilus, I get this:
mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000" "/dev/sda3" "/media/pilar/data" exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sda3': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
I checked the NTFS partition with gparted. No error.
Why is Ubuntu unable to mount this partition? I prefer to solve this problem only with the GUI system.
