[SOLVED] Data Partition will not mount

I have my HDD split into partitions for ease of use. 50GB for my Mint, a little swap partition, then my data partition, which is most of the hard drive. Everything worked fine with that set-up until I decided to resize the data partition and add a new 50GB partition at the end of the drive for a Windows install.

Now when I attempt to access my data partition, I get an error pop-up that says, "Unable to mount Volume, No Object for D-Bus interface."

Did I mess something up with my resizing? Should I start over with a new install of OSes and redo my partitions? I have all of my data backed up to an external drive, so if I have to start over and redo everything, I can swing it. Just would rather not have to take the time.

Thank you to all who can help.

If sda4 is the partition in question, does it mount with

Code: Select all

sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sda4 /mnt
or is /dev/sda3 the problem partition :?:

dev/sda3 is the partition that will not mount. sda4 will mount just fine, but that is going to be a Windows install pretty soon.

OK, so what happens with this

Code: Select all

sudo mount -v -t ext4 /dev/sda3 /mnt
