If so, then that happens when the dirty bit is set for any reason. Can be removed with ntfsfix, but preferably you should run chkdsk on windows. However it is mounted readonly to avoid problems since it usually mean to be checked, but on linux there is no tool to check ntfs filesystems.
Attempting to correct errors… Error opening read-only ‘/dev/nvme1n1p2’: Permission denied
Failed to startup volume: Permission denied
Error opening ‘/dev/nvme1n1p2’: Read-only file system
Volume is corrupt. You should run chkdsk.
it is a non-removable hard drive (well NVMe SSD really) - might just have to do the transfer data operation I think
Those are utilities for changing the POSIX file ownership and permissions. NTFS is not a POSIX filesystem and does not support or store that kind of information. Please see…
If an NTFS filesystem is mounted read-only in GNU/Linux, then it’s usually because it was used by Windows with the Windows fast boot (hybrid sleep) enabled, which does not properly shut down the filesystems. Upon trying to mount such a filesystem in GNU/Linux, the kernel will detect this open state as filesystem damage and will mount the filesystem read-only so as to prevent further damage.
Thanks much Aragorn…I’ll note that for future reference. I did find on one of the Linux reports it showed the disk as corrupt (even though I could access the data) …so I just did a transfer of the data to an external drive, deleted and re-established the drive under Gparted as EXT4, and transferred the data back…only took about an hour and a bit
EDIT: That is some pretty intense stuff in those tutes! Lots over my head, but I get the general gist! That would have take you a long time to prepare those for everyone, so even though I daresay you’ve been thanked lots, add another one from me!
Most of the software listed was installed - the one thing I forgot was to unlock the Printer Config box - it appears with an “unlocked” padlock, which cause me to think it was unlocked, BUT the article indicated that it was the opposite. Followed that step and the rest was easy.
Just printed a test page!
Thanks to all who gave advice, and so quickly as well!! Much appreciated.
I’ll mark the thread topic as solved , in case another has a similar issue.
