Ubuntu: Clean Installed Ubuntu 14.04 - Second HDD is Read Only - How to gain permissions?



Question:

I recently wiped Windows 10, and installed Ubuntu 14.04 directly on C drive.

I also have a secondary 2TB drive with only media, music, photos, movies. I am now unable to access the drive.

The drive appears as "/dev/sdb" under Disks

-

Error Mounting filesystem

"Error mounting /dev/sdb1 at /media/roobs/2 Big Ass Bytes: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sdb1" "/media/roobs/2 Big Ass Bytes"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0). Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount. Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Operation not permitted The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume read-only with the 'ro' mount option. (udisks-error-quark, 0)"\

However, if I go to "Disks" and I edit Partition 1 such as

Automatic Mount Options OFF and i add the line ",ro" at the end of

nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show

- To look like

nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show,ro

- Then I am now able to access the drive and view my media. However, I do not have permissions to WRITE data?

How can I make this change, since I no longer have Windows available, I cannot go back into Windows file system and change the drive's permissions?


Solution:1

(I don't have reputation to comment so have to write in answer, sorry for that!!)

you may follow this link for help:http://itsfoss.com/solve-ntfs-mount-problem-ubuntu-windows-8-dual-boot/? I says about ntfsfix in ubuntu but have not tried it.

I too have dual boot:Windows 8.1 and Ununtu 15.10 and solved this problem by disabling the fast startup.
