Problem mounting a partition!

I have the problem that I can’t mount a data partition! I copy log below.

( An error occurred while logging into «Samsung», the system reported: The requested operation failed: Error mounting /dev/nvme0n1p6 at /run/media/andrea/Samsung: wrong fs type, bad option , bad superblock on /dev/nvme0n1p6, missing codepage or helper program, or other error )

the partition is 100% functional with other OS

Thank you .

Is it an NTFS partition?
If so, try

sudo ntfsfix -d /dev/nvme0n1p6

Just for completeness, and if this has never been working before, NTFS partitions should be mounted with the ntfs-3g package.
You can install it with:

sudo pacman -S ntfs-3g

Then mount your drive as follows:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/nvme0n1p6 /mnt/

Or in a place different from /mnt.
ntfs-3g can be used also in the fstab.


yes the partition is in NTFS, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t work but only with garuda.
I gave the command ( sudo ntfsfix -d /dev/nvme0n1p6 ) and now it works

Mounting volume… OK
Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully.
Checking the alternate boot sector… OK
NTFS volume version is 3.1.
NTFS partition /dev/nvme0n1p6 was processed successfully.

Is this solution permanent?

Grazie !

anche te sei italiano ? :sweat_smile:

Prego, sì sono italiano :wink:
The point is that Linux and the NTFS file system don’t get along very well.
So that command will be most likely needed in the future. Or you could have even worse corruptions…
A good “summary” :smiling_face: here
