Hi, I’m encountering a lot of issues using USB pen and hard disk drives.
If I connect an USB drive, the first time the system mount it without problem but if I try to copy or paste files I see strange speed values (sometimes too fast, sometimes too slow). After I disconnect the device, if I reconnect it the system see the drive but it canno’t mount it (GParted talks about a ntfs issue).
I’ve installed the ntfs-3g library.
This is the error for GParted:
$MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0). Failed to mount '/dev/sdb': Errore di input/output NTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE! The usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was made to NTFS by this software.
What can I do? At the moment I cannot use any USB drive without the risk of corrupting it.
