I was moving around 200+GB data from one WD external drive to another. Although the drives were connected to USB3 port the process was taking time. And I felt asleep and shutdown the system. Next day I connect hard drive and I see
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: $MFTMirr does not match $MFT (record 0).
“Wut!” The complete text said.
Failed to mount ‘/dev/sdc1?: Input/output error NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it’s a SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g. /dev/mapper/media_eahaabcc1). Please see the ‘dmraid’ documentationfor more details.
OK. But my Windows XP Centrino laptop will take ages to book and I do have “ntfs-3g” installed. May be it can fix this problem. And I could see these
ntfs-3g ntfs-3g.secaudit ntfscat ntfscluster ntfsdecrypt ntfsfix ntfsls ntfsmove ntfswipe ntfs-3g.probe ntfs-3g.usermap ntfsck ntfscmp ntfsdump_logfile ntfsinfo ntfsmftalloc ntfstruncate
And we have
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdc1
Look for the success message and done!
