Hey i have dual boot windows and Ubuntu. When i installed ubuntu all Local Disks worked well but when some time past i can not access to local disk D. I have very important files there. I cant access to windows too it is broken. When i try to mount local disk D it shows me the error:

Error mounting system-managed device /dev/sda3: Command-line `mount "/mnt/94EE82ACEE8285E8"' exited with non-zero exit status 13: 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.

Can i mount local disk somehow from Ubuntu?

In Windows:

We need to test/repair any Windows/NTFS partitions using chkdsk, and we need to disable fast start and hibernation.

  • open an administrative command prompt window and type chkdsk /f c: and approve to run this at the next reboot time

  • type chkdsk /f d: changing the "d" to any other drive letters that exist on your system

  • disable fast start in the Power control panel

    open the Power control panel

    select Change what power buttons do

    select Change options that are unavailable

    uncheck fast start

  • in the open administrative command prompt window, type powercfg /h off

  • reboot Windows and let chkdsk test/repair the C: drive

  • reboot Ubuntu and see if your drive is available now

  • Is there any way to do this from linux because i do not have access to windows, it is broken. @heynnema

  • Please describe what's going on with Windows, and what steps you have taken to fix it? Do you have a Windows installation/repair CD/DVD?
