    Not being able to mount a partition as NTFS.

    Hello,
    So I mistakenly made a NTFS partition as linux-swap, I fixed that and now the partition is fully functional in windows, but when I check with GParted it still detects it as a linux-swap type. What can I do to mount that partition as NTFS?
    Can I force mount it or is there any other way?
    I already tried to change the partition type from terminal, it said it succeeded but it still detects it as a linux-swap.

    It seems I had 2 filesystems on that partition and i removed the linux-swap one

    Re: Not being able to mount a partition as NTFS.

    Well that's a bit of a puzzle. Can we see the results of the following terminal commands please?

    Code:
    sudo parted /dev/sdXX print
    
    sudo file -sL /dev/sdXX
    
    swapon -s
    where /dev/sdXX is the actual partition (/dev/sda7 or whatever). How did you fix the original mistake?
