Mount Error Cause By Windows Protecting Its Cache

Mount Error Cause By Windows Protecting Its Cache

This error is what I meant when mounting a harddisk of the broken notebook :

Error mounting /dev/sdb4 at /media/xxx/OS: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000" "/dev/sdb4" "/media/xxx/OS"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: Windows is hibernated, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb4': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the 'ro' mount option.

Actually I can put it back into the notebook and do the clean shutdown, but the notebook has the broken motherboard. So this operation is supposed to save the datas.

The ubuntu forum in here, suggest these code to run :

#sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdb4
#sudo mount -o rw /dev/sdb4 /mnt/somemounting

And yes it worked.
