Short Story: I am running Ubuntu off a thumb drive I was able to mount and external usb 3tb volume and used the FTP client filezilla to transfer files to my windows 7 computer and it was working, but ever since I unplugged it it wont mount , it is detected but wont mount.
Long story (Feel free to skip this ): I had a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit installed on my desktop on raid 10 (0+1)
with almost 2 TB of data. I used a GParted Live CD to copy entire drive to my external 3TB Hitachi hard drive in order to change my raid and copy back the files from the external hard drive. However GParted no longer recognized the NTFS partition windows does not recognize the NTFS partition it comes up as RAW however by some luck Ubuntu recognizes it and all my system files and programs are there and I copied most of them over to a blank NTFS partition on WIndows 7 through the network using the FTP client Filezilla however I was not able to finish because everyone in a while the external drives slows down and I unpluged it then repluged it then it would go full speed again and I would continue filezilla then one day it just would not mount. The three partions I have on it are detected however they wont mount. I did this same process with my laptop I coppied my laptop hardrive to an external drive using GPARTED then I put the external drive in used startup repar for windows 7 it booted so it may be related to the raid.?
Here is the message When I plug in the external hardrive:
Unable to mount 1.9 TB Filesystem
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 16: Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened.
The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which
could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command.
How can I make Ubuntu mount the drive? I think it thinks that a old session of Ubuntu has a lock on it still.
