Problem with mount NTFS partition - can't mount properly

Asked by Piotr on 2021-04-02

Dear Ubuntu Community,

I deinstalled Windows in my friend machine but now I can't mount properly NTFS partition. Output from terminal:

"Falling back to read-only mount because the NTFS partition is in an
unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation
or fast restarting.)"

I am sure that I shutted down Windows before deinstallation. How I can repair this if I don't want to lose my data and I don't want install Windows? Can you help me?

Yours faitfully,

Go to Ubuntu open Gparted Delete the Windows partitions. Open Boot repair and recover grub.
Restart Computer.

You can look for Gparted and Boot repair on Ubuntu software center snap packages.

This is noot good answer. I don't have problem with GRUB. I want to leave this partition and I don't want delete this because I have there photos and videos. This is important data if I will use Gparted this destroy my data. I don't want do this. Someone have solution to fix it without deleting data?

I fixed this issue. Simply I runed Windows installed without installation than I shut down computer properly. Windows 10 probably shuted down but for hibernation mode for fast startup so this was problem. Now everything works fine and I can properly mount partition.

I mean that I runed Windows installator and not "installed" like I mentioned. This was problem with my english.
