Can't access my windows partition but can access through ubuntu

Asked by Manish Kumar

Hi All,

I am using dual boot system for windows 7 and Ubuntu. The Ubuntu version is 10.04. Earlier I was able to access all of my drive through windows and UBUNTU as well, but from few days back i am unable to use two of my windows partition( NTFS) i saying "you need to format partition before you use the drive" but the same drive is accessible through Ubuntu. I can see every thing on that drive through UBUNTU but not through windows.

I am not sure if this problem is due to UBUNTU or something else. Please help !!!!!!

Thanks in advance

Probably this is a Windows problem. Faced my self at time before.

If you have access through Ubuntu, then take all of your important data , to another disk (external or not) and do what Windows suggests.

I will not recommend to Use Ntfsfix or gparted to try to correct the NTFS partition through Ubuntu, cuz it is very possible to lose your data.


Can you help with this problem?
