Improper shutdown of Ubuntu 18.04 live session

Asked by NSR on 2020-02-07

I was running an Ubuntu 18.04 live session off a USB (the default version, not persistent and without enabling the toram parameter during boot). As a not-so-clever mindless action, I accidentally pulled out the USB and shut down the live session via the top right shutdown button of the Ubuntu desktop. The system threw some I/O errors but otherwise did shut down.
My question is whether there can be any negative consequences to the main windows installation on the machine or to RAM because of this? Is there anything worth checking?
The windows did boot after the action but was quite slow, could have been because of some recent updates though..
Thanks!

If the Windows disk is mounted then perhaps. The live USB desktop doesn't touch the internal storage unless you start bringing them into the OS.

I can imagine it would do more harm to the USB stick

Can you help with this problem?
