Mount Error C Drive Cause of Windows Hibernate

I noted this kind an error :

xxx@xxx-pc:~$ sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdb4
Mounting volume... Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
FAILED
Attempting to correct errors... 
Processing $MFT and $MFTMirr...

Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully.
Setting required flags on partition... OK
Going to empty the journal ($LogFile)... OK
Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
Remount failed: Operation not permitted

So this is one package with the error I posted in the earlier post. But with different solution. The solution I found is in here. It is using ntfs-3g command with advanced options. Oh yes, this drive is actually the drive C for the Windows system.

#sudo ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sdb4 /mnt/somemount

That’s it. I can save the important files.
