Can see Windows drive on file browser but cannot open

Postby Scrubtrash » Sun Feb 17, 2013 10:18 pm

I can see it in the file browser but when i click it it says it cannot open the drive,yet I have another drive with a NTFS partition on it(the others are Linux ones)and it opens just fine.
When I mount by command line it tells me it isn't a block device and stats fails and stuff...

Nope,i later went on my Windows partition and it worked just fine.
And besides,it's working now.Looks like all it needed was a reboot.

I've noticed that many times, the mount command won't work on NTFS partitions if they need a chkdsk /f
