    Exclamation Prob Accessing Windows Partition, HELP

    its not very urgent but a problem nonetheless. The accessing of the windows partition from ubuntu was fairly stable until today when i tried to access it via nautilus and as soon as i attempted to click a folder on the partition, nautilus freezes and i have to restart nautilus. This problem also occurs under sudo nautilus.

    ps. i'm no linux expert

    it's a nstc formatted partition by the way

    p.s.s: the system monitor reveals that my CPU usage is unusually high (90-100%)

    try running a file system scan to make sure it hasn't gotten corrupted.
    There is an easy way, and a hard way to do things.
    If you're anything like me, you've tried to do things things the hard way,

    and broke something.......

    In windows run "chkdsk /f". Although you can also use "ntfsfix" in Ubuntu:
    sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs
    sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY # X- drive Y - partition

    sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs
    sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda1
    ntfsfix is able to repair some minor errors and it will flag the volume as dirty. So the next time you try to boot Windows XP, XP should run "chkdsk".
