How do I access my Windows 10 partition from Ubuntu?

Postby Alex01UK » Sun Sep 04, 2016 4:48 pm

I can see the device but not mount it.

Windows 10 Home, Ubuntu Studio 16.04 LTS with Mate Desktop.

aha, tia from Alex.

For 1) You need NTFS support installed in Linux
For 2) You need an EXTFS driver (if you are using EXTFS) installed in Windows.

However the different permission structures in Windows and Linux can cause issues when copying files across or when accessing them directly from a different OS.
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

You need to make sure that Fast Startup is disabled in Windows or you could face some unpleasantness the next time you load it up (I've only had this happen once, was totally recoverable, but has made me a but shy of mounting my Windows NTFS disk in Linux, considering I didn't go anywhere I thought might cause a problem). It can be found under "Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Settings -> System Settings (Shutdown Settings)" MS recommend you turn it on, but MS recommend SecureBoot as well, soo... ;)

I've never had any other unpleasantness with NTFS reading/writing from inside Linux, even as far back as kernel 3.2 (Ubuntu 12.04 timeframe) except that you will need to check when writing to NTFS that filenames are valid. Linux will happily write filenames which NTFS can't cope with (I'm thinking anything with a colon - screenshots - being the most common) and while Linux can write and read it, Windows can't. Windows also can't delete them, which if you're not expecting it can be a bit of a head-scratcher. :lol:

...

I've never had much success with accessing Linux partitions in Windows (with the exception of ext2, back in the day when I used it) as something always seems to go slightly awry. End result; I usually run three disks in any dual-boot system now: a Windows SSD (Windows boot loader), a Linux SSD (GRUB, pointing at unaltered Windows bootloader) and a 'data' disk (usually NTFS formatted) with the data disk being the only one that both OSes access.

#sorTeD. i'VE got eUfI issues. When I boot up I have to tap f12 continious to get the boot menu to get into Ubuntu.
When you shut down Windows 10, it doesn't shut down. It Hybernates. So....................

Unplug The AC connector. Caine your battery until it switches off.
Plug AC Conector in, and boot into Windows 10.
Wait until it has finished booting up and everything.
Then Press Power Button {Bottom Left Hand Corner - Click it with Mouse. It is called Power Icon know, and choose restart.}
When you click Restart, it doesn't Hybernate, so TAP F12 like Mad until you get The Menu.
Choose Ubuntu.

And it is all fixed. Reads \ Writes both ways....
You can't run Microsoft Edge though. Needs Windows 10.
Edge is basically IE12.

In Windows, go into adminstrator shell and run

Code: Select all
powercfg /h off


Then shutdown means shutdown.

QUOTED: I've never had any other unpleasantness with NTFS reading/writing from inside Linux, even as far back as kernel 3.2 (Ubuntu 12.04 timeframe) except that you will need to check when writing to NTFS that filenames are valid. Linux will happily write filenames which NTFS can't cope with (I'm thinking anything with a colon - screenshots - being the most common) and while Linux can write and read it, Windows can't. Windows also can't delete them, which if you're not expecting it can be a bit of a head-scratcher. :lol:

Mine has a filter on the filename when writing. It filters out all unvalid filenames when writing to the Windows Hd.
