Failure Mounting Hibernated NTFS
I use Windows 10.
ntfs-3g works pretty well reading stuff, but it’s a long time since I could write anything. I turned off every sleep and hibernation and fast boot I could find, but to no avail. This sucks big time and I take it as a big fuck you from Microsoft. I spent hours searching and browsing for answers, but it’s like pure chaos.
damon@rapthalia:/run/media/damon$ mount /dev/nvme0n1p2 -o rw /mnt Mount is denied because the NTFS volume is already exclusively opened. The volume may be already mounted, or another software may use it which could be identified for example by the help of the 'fuser' command. damon@rapthalia:/run/media/damon$ umount CED8E5E3D8E5C9B3/ umount: /run/media/damon/CED8E5E3D8E5C9B3: must be superuser to unmount. damon@rapthalia:/run/media/damon$ sudo umount CED8E5E3D8E5C9B3/ Password: damon@rapthalia:/run/media/damon$ mount /dev/nvme0n1p2 -o rw /mnt Windows is hibernated, refused to mount. Falling back to read-only mount because the NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting.) ntfs-3g-mount: user has no write access to mountpoint /mnt damon@rapthalia:/run/media/damon$ sudo ntfsfix /dev/nvme0n1p2 Mounting volume...

There is a new NTFS driver from Paragon https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=New-NTFS-Likely-For-Linux-5.15, which should land in Linux kernel 5.15. Does it mean the end of pain? Dunno. Most likely no, but reads will be much faster.
