I can't mount my Windows C partition

I can mount my other NTFS partition except my Windows partition, dolphin shows:

An error occurred while accessing ‘Windows 10’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting /dev/sda3 at /media/zakaria/Windows 10: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda3, missing codepage or helper program, or other error

Did you shutdown your Windoze machine properly?

To disable “fast boot” in Windows is always highly recommended (!) when dual-booting with Linux.
This is the first thing I do after a Windows installation - some say that "it is almost certain to cause filesystem corruption if left enabled".

And for NTFS you could try sudo ntfsfix -d /dev/sda3 in the Konsole terminal emulator.
Sometimes this is the solution for the error message you posted.


Thanks, It works using sudo ntfsfix -d /dev/sda3

I have to flink in a warning here.
I personally know people whose ntfs file system became totally scrambled when using this command, ie it became non repairable.
IIRC the command above removes the “dirty bit” from the filesystem and therefore “fix it”.

ntfs is closed source software to microsoft, use microsoft software to fix microsoft file systems!

If you want a file system you can share without problems between windows and linux, use an open source file system, like exFat.
