Unable to mount the volume external drive
I have 3 computers with debian Linux installed since one month. They are working smoothly but i have the problem that they cannot read or mount he USB disk since yesterday, while i starting doing some personal work, like copying huge files or transferring data. I want to know what is going on and how to repair.
The error was :
Unable to mount the volume external drive details.
ntfs_attr_pread:Zero run length(4096 ! =13172).
Failed to mount'/dev/sdb1':Input/output error NTFS
Is either inconsistent,or you have hardware faults, Or you have a softRAID/FakeRAID hardware faults,
In the first case run chkdsk /f on windows then reboot.
Into windows TWICE. The usage of the /f parameter is very important !
If you have softRAID/FakeRAID then first you must activate it and mount a different device.
Under the/DEV/MAPPER/directory,(eg/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see
The 'dmraid' documentation for the details.
