Unable to mount internal NTFS drive

Post#1 by Ontvlugting » 08 May 2016, 10:41

Hi all

Please know that I've searched other forums and threads to try and solve this issue however none of the solutions helped for my specific problem. I'm new to Linux and I really, really like Porteus. I have installed and uninstalled Porteus a dozen times to fix the issues but now that I have sorted them out I cannot access my laptop's internal drive. I have Xfce 64 on an SD-card. I boot from that, however when in Porteus I keep getting the "NTFS is in an unsafe state" error message. This is weird because when I previously ran Porteus I could access my windows storage drive. The Cl solutions given in other forums didn't help. WHAT do I do?
