I have a dual boot system with an
NTFS partition (C:) dedicated to the
windows 8 OS files, an
EXT4 partition dedicated to
Linux Mint 17.
There is also another
NTFS partition (E:) which I would like to use for some files shared between the two OS's.
The problem is that whenever I hibernate Windows 8 it sets the
hibernation flag on both
E: making it impossible to write into the shared partition from Linux.
Is there any way to force Linux Mint to mount the partiton as R/W or to prevent windows 8 from setting this flag on the shared partition? I know that an obvious solution would be to just normally shutdown windows 8 (with fast boot disabled) but I really need to have it hibernated.
