    Post Installed windows, Lost NTFS read/Write permission in ubuntu

    Alright,

    Now this is the problem.

    Ubuntu and Windows shares the same hard disk(Half of size for each) - A separate Hard disk - which contain only system files

    Rest of the files are in another drive which is commonly shared by Ubuntu & Windows which is in NTFS format

    After installing windows I lost the read/write permission in ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

    Note: I don't rely on tools for solving the problem.

    Please suggest some procedures as list, it will be helpful

    Which version of Windows?
    Is Windows fully shutdown? ie Not in hibernation
    Have you run a Windows 'chkdsk' on the NTFS partition?

    Check this procedure while Windows is running, Control Panel > Power Options > Change what the power button does > Change settings currently unavailable > un-tick the Fast Start up box > also empty the Allow Hibernation box > Apply. Close the Control Panel.
