And below is the how-to-fix steps:
1. Fully shutdown Windows 10, or disable Fast Startup
Ubuntu Linux can’t access Win10 system drive because Windows does not fully shut down (it actually hibernates). So you have to choose:
- Do a full shutdown – When you’re in Windows select “Restart” option or hold the SHIFT key when clicking “Shutdown” option.
- or Disable Fast Startup – Launch Control Panel and do:
- click the link “Change settings that are currently unavailable” at the top
- uncheck the “Turn on fast startup” box under Shutdown settings.
2. Add read & write mount permission
After step 1 you should be able to access your Windows system drive in Ubuntu. But to have write permission, you still need to do:
1. Launch Disks utility from Unity Dash or Application Launcher.
2. When it launches, highlight Windows 10 partition (it’ll be a NTFS partition), then click the gear button and select “Edit Mount Options”.
3. In next window, disable “Automatic Mount Options” and add remove_hiberfile to the end of the text box, separated by a comma.
After saving the changes, click mount/remount the Windows 10 partition in your file
