i just recently bought a seagate 500 GB external hard drive. just a few minutes ago i was transferring some files when another window popped up. i simple closed the window when another window showed up. now when i try to mount my hard drive i get this:
UNABLE TO MOUNT EXPANSION DRIVE
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': 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
does anyone know what that means? i'm going to go to the seagate website for help too, but i wanted to try here first. can anyone help?
