An error occurred while accessing 'Home', the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting /dev/sda1 at /run/media/haru/New Volume: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

Well, in the article the solution was formatting, so you'd loose your data...
Maybe you could start providing the output of lsblk -f and sudo fdisk -l.


so my files are already gone right?

Not necessarily


with things like that, the first thing i tend to do is live boot and see if you can read the partition from there. Only takes a minute to do and then you'll know if further, more drastic action is required.

This command is very wrong. If this is the exact command you entered in terminal, it is expected to fail.
If this is wrong, post the exact command.


im beginner to linux. if there's no certain solution.Should i reinstall os ?

Is one of your drives an NTFS formatted (Windows) drive?

If so disconnect it from your computer.

This is looking like an NTFS bug, see:


I think it is just missing a space. :joy:

Probably will still have to replace ntfsprogs with ntfs-3g because of the bug TBG mentioned.


See this post:

Install the ntfs-3g package:

sudo pacman -Syu ntfs-3g

Then try mounting your drive as follows:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /mnt/windows_garbage

i think that the files are corrupt because

More likely the filesystem. NTFS is very fragile and improper mounts/dismounts can "break" it.

I think this is probably unnecessary. A more realistic worst case scenario would be having to use the disk repair utility from Windows to restore the filesystem.


NTFS sucks lol. I wonder why Microsoft refuse to use something better but maybe because of compatibility reasons with old versions of Windows. Would be nice to run Windows on ext4 though. Or even btrfs

Windows with BTRFS would be a match made in heaven... "Microsoft broke my shit again, guess a snapshot it is"


Yeah if only that was possible. Tbh though I break Linux like daily almost and haven't had Windows fully break beyond repair in years. Probably because I can't do stupid stuff as much as they limit you a lot haha.

If it is an NTFS drive that is broken, try mounting it in Windows and doing a scan/repair on it through Windows.

If you cannot get it to mount at all, then you could try using testdisk to repair the drive or recover the files you want to save.


I think from the Linux side of the fence, NTFS causes nothing but grief. For a Windows user, it is a robust and useful filesystem. Unfortunately for us, a lot of the usefulness of NTFS is baked in to the elaborate software padding that Windows (only) provides.

We all kind of scoff at NTFS and consider it a lesser filesystem, but in its day it was revolutionary. It was the first journaling filesystem available to casual users (some seven or eight years before ext3), and also the first to roll out other features we now take for granted like encryption and compression.

Nowadays a lot of the cool features of NTFS are secreted away behind Microsoft's walled garden. Windows users can enjoy a filesystem that detects and repairs errors automatically--sometimes without the users awareness--which is a far cry from the frequently broken, featureless filesystem visible to us Linux users.
