This question already has an answer here:
Initially I was running Windows OS which had three partitions: C, D and E. I then installed Ubuntu 16.04 in 'C' (formatting it and wiping out windows). Now in my Ubuntu when I try to access my E drive I get this error:
Error mounting /dev/sda3 at /media/cyan/F428D28228D24372: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000" "/dev/sda3" "/media/cyan/F428D28228D24372"' 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.
Please help me to retrieve my files. I have valuable information which I don't want to lose. 'c' 'D' and 'E' are partition of internal drive not external
i have no dual boot i am left with only one 'OS' that is ubuntu in 'C' drive.
