I used Ubuntu for long even along Windows and SOMETIMES I got this problem for mounting the corresponding NTFS partition at the beginning, however with a pair of command lines to the console I got it fixed.
However, I moved to Linux Mint MATE 15 and I'm ALWAYS getting this problem, I've looked up and I know there's this new use for the hibernation file in Windows 8 which enables fast start up.
Why can't I just mount my NTFS partition ignoring the hibernation file? Is this even possible? And, again, why would this get worse with Linux Mint?
I really like the quicker boot of Windows 8 so I don't really consider disabling Windows hibernation and going to Windows to restart and log to Linux is cumbersome...
