    [SOLVED] Re: Copy files on NTFS partitions?

    You need to be more specific on what actually happens when you try to copy to an ntfs partition. The fact that you did an upgrade on windows may be the problem or part of it as windows generally...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Can't boot --> /dev/sda8 contains a file system with errors, check forced.

  22. [SOLVED] Re: After Windows 10 upgrade still see Windows 7 Partition affecting new Ubuntu upgra
