Ubuntu: Dumping a windows hibernation in ubuntu


For future reference and saving me a bunch of time, I would like to know how to dump a windows hibernation on its physical partition, so I can mount it's volume as rw without having to reboot my rig, starting the resume, dumping it, and rebooting back to linux.

Thanks again :)


If you want to delete the Windows hibernation file i.e. hiberfil.sys so that you can mount the windows hibernated partition type this command in terminal:

sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda1 /media/windows

(Replace /dev/sda1 with your windows partition and create windows directory inside /media using sudo mkdir /media/windows if it is not present).

Note: It can cause problem in Windows resume.
