When I restarted my laptop today I was faced with the following error message:
an error occurred while mounting /media/docs
press s to skip mounting or M for manual recovery
Then, when I try to open the 'docs' partition:
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with:
mount: only root can mount /dev/sda3 on /media/docs
And when I try
this is the message I get:
sudo mount /dev/sda3 /media/docs
I used to have a Windows partition, but I have deleted it some time ago.
ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error
Failed to read NTFS $Bitmap: 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 can I access my documents on 'docs'?
-How could I make /media/docs mount automatically on startup ?
As I'm a beginner I'd be grateful if you could detail your answer. Thank you very much.
