I just got a new external hard drive WD My Passport 0820, it works perfectly fine on windows, but on ubuntu it says unable to mount, while on windows it mounts perfectly. I've tried formatting the drive with ntfs-3g it gives the following error:
Mounting volume... OK Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully. Checking the alternate boot sector... FAILED Error: Failed to fix the alternate boot sector
I've ran chkdsk /f, chkdsk /r they all say your drive contains no error, on disk management on windows it reads as healthy partition,on gparted it reads as unknown, i've tried every possible answer relating to this issue online but still can't find a solution. Please i need help, how do i fix this error?
p.s: it's NTFS
