#7399 closed bug (duplicate)

Not able to mount NTFS volume

Reported by: Disreali Owned by: 3dEyes
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: File Systems/NTFS Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: #8332 Blocking:
Platform: All


Experienced on hrev41022-4h-nightly.

After installing I noticed that my WinXP NTFS volume was no longer listed in the Mount sub-menu. DriveSetup also does not list the NTFS volume's information anymore.

I have no problems with mounting the same NTFS volume on a hrev40968-4h-alpha that I have installed on a separate partition on the same system.

It would be nice to have a syslog as always.

The code which identifies the partition for ntfs isn't verbose enough to explain why it's not recognized anyway. Do you know whether the OS was hibernated on this partition? That's a common reason for not being able to identify, though the code should handle this better (ie identify but not allow mount) to bring a message to the user.

There was no hibernating on xp. I have disabled hibernation on that WinXP install.

I just built and installed a hrev41076 gcc4hybrid alpha image and was able to mount and see in DriveSetup the XP volume. Could it be that the hrev41022 was a nightly? Is there something missing in the nightly images that would account for this?

Attaching syslog from the 41022-nightly install.

This looks like a dup of #7019.

Could you please try again with hrev41081 or newer and provide a syslog? It looks like the random issue in #7019 indeed.
