    mount exited with exit code 13


    I've been spending the night trying to redistribute space on my harddrive, which has led me to reinstall ubuntu.

    Currently I'm running Windows 7 and Ubuntu as dualbooting.

    Right now, when starting windows it enters a repair state, finishes that and reboots.

    Also, ubuntu is giving this error.

    "Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: Corrupted file $UpCase
    Failed to mount '/dev/sda4': Input/output error
    NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
    SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
    then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
    important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
    it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
    /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
    for more details.

    How should I proceed?

    I've used the search function, but the resolutions all seem "situation"-specific.

    gparted tells me to do a checkdisk /f, but I cannot do this since I can't boot it up.
