Hey, I have an old NTFS drive from my gaming desktop that has pretty much all of my data on it. I wan’t to access it so I can start tidying it up and whatnot. I’m using KDE and when I try to mount the drive in Dolphin, it gives me:
An error occurred while accessing ‘Home’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting /dev/sdd2 at /run/media/alexc/0C421D52421D41BE: Command-line `mount -t “ntfs” -o “uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=100” “/dev/sdd2” “/run/media/alexc/0C421D52421D41BE”’ 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/sdd2’: 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’ve tinkered with things a fair bit and in a previous Antergos installation (which I ended up breaking) and I was at least able to grab an .iso file I was trying to get, but still couldn’t properly get the drive to mount (or mount on boot). A lot of guides I found either weren’t working for me or I just wasn’t grasping what they were telling me to do. I’m going to see if I can at least grab that .iso again, but I’d appreciate any help I could get from you guys in the event I still can’t figure it out.
I should note that I’ve successfully gotten Antergos to mount the rest of my (“non-windows/ntfs”) disks on boot without any apparent issue.
