Can't mount hard drive after system crash

You can try ntfsfix--kind of a hail mary, to be fair. If it doesn't work you'll need to fix it on a Windows box.

Give it a shot, paste the output here in the thread.

sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda2

Thanks for the answer, but where do I get it?

The Windows Store, of course. This is Linux, and ntfsfix is a command.

Type 'man ntfsfix' in a terminal and it will tell you the usage.


You already have ntfsfix. My understanding is it is part of the ntfs-3g package you already installed. Go ahead and try to run it.


Thanks! I have ran the previous command and now I can mount it properly.
