I have a question about the ntfsfix command.
I am using a live USB install of Ubuntu (the latest download) to try and get to files on a Windows HD that will not boot. I cannot get into Windows through safe mode, nor the repair disc or startup repair. The drive would not mount, and I suspect that Windows is severely corrupted.
I tried the ntfsfix command and got a result similar to this:
Mounting volume... OK
Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully.
NTFS volume version is 3.1.
NTFS partition /dev/sdg1 was processed successfully.
However, I can no longer even see the drive. While the drive was visible before, listed "Gateway" in the side panel, now nothing is there. Tried booting into Windows again unsuccessfully.
Where is my drive? How do I go about locating it since I cannot see it? It was my understanding that ntfsfix would attempt to fix the corrupted files so that Windows could boot normally.
Thanks for any help, from a very inexperienced Ubuntu user.
