its not very urgent but a problem nonetheless. The accessing of the windows partition from ubuntu was fairly stable until today when i tried to access it via nautilus and as soon as i attempted to click a folder on the partition, nautilus freezes and i have to restart nautilus. This problem also occurs under sudo nautilus.
ps. i'm no linux expert
it's a nstc formatted partition by the way
p.s.s: the system monitor reveals that my CPU usage is unusually high (90-100%)
