    How to use Windows8 Drive in Linux Mint 15?


    Hi Guys,
    I am a fresh new user of linux based OS. I am in a problem.

    In windows 8 I can read and write my all drive but when I am on Linux Mint 15 I cant open those drives.

    When I click on any drive for open or mount this pop up will apear.

    Hi and welcome

    As the error states: The filesystem of that drive is in an non-consistent state.
    The windows filesystems are proprietary. Linux can read and write to them, but maintenance tasks on such a filesystem is better done natively, aka on windows.
    My recommendation is to do a filesystem check on this drive with your w8.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
