I have a mounted hard drive that I keep the majority of my files on for programming.
I noticed that some files suddenly couldn’t be deleted. Unsure why. After a restart, I noticed that my hard drive was no longer mounted in its location.
Instead of being mounted at
/run/media/nick/HDD - it was now
The old folder still exists, and all that is in it are those files that I couldn’t delete. It appears to be mounted as a
tmpfs drive and is owned by
root instead of my user. I’ve tried deleting those files as well as unmounting that drive, but after I restart, it comes back.
Is there anything I can do here short of re-creating the partition? The drive is NTFS as it’s shared by my Windows dual boot. However, I haven’t booted in to windows since the problem started happening.
