hard drive issues
Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 13: ntfs_attr_pread_i: ntfs_pread failed: Input/output error
Failed to read vcn 0x1: Input/output error
Failed to mount '/dev/sdb1': Input/output error
NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
/dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
for more details.
please help me out.. Important data is in disk... please help me.
Sounds like an hardware error.
Depending on how valueable and important the data is,
you can try to restore it yourself with tools like testdisk, photorec and/or dd_rescue,
you might want to consider a professional data restore service (ie: DO NOT touch the disc from now on, and rather leave it to experts)
Just to be clear: The experts meant here are guys with a clean room, specialized hardware, etc. Not your local pc dealer
Other than that: Important data is usually backed up. Do you have a backup system in place?You must always face the curtain with a bow.
