I was experimenting with HDF5 installation from a permanently mounted NTFS data partition so lots of deletion etc. Now part of the folder (containing some codes etc.) is not deleting and showing the above error. I have already NTFS-3g etc. but only have windows on virtualbox (from which also can not delete). Thanks for all the help!

I am on CentOS 7.

  • How is that NTFS partition mounted on your Windows VM? – Julie Pelletier Jun 28 '16 at 4:38
  • @Julie: The OP has tages nrfs-3g that means he has used it ntfs-3g for mounting the filesystem. hope he reply to confirm – Mongrel Jun 28 '16 at 5:44
  • I used centos 7 fstab entry 'UUID=4A6C45276C450F5F /mnt/Various ntfs defaults 0 0' to mount. In VM win 7 it is mounted as shared folder – ankhi Jun 28 '16 at 9:24

This means your filesystem is damaged, Input/Output errors during filesystem access attempts generally mean hardware issues.

Type dmesg and check for log. it might be because of connection to it is failing, it'll be noted there.

is it mounting it via ntfs or ntfs-3g ? As I recall, the legacy ntfs driver had no stable write support and was largely abandoned when it turned out ntfs-3g was significantly more stable and secure.

  • it is mounted as 'UUID=4A6C45276C450F5F /mnt/Various ntfs defaults 0 0' . should I make it ntfs-3g? – ankhi Jun 28 '16 at 9:27
  • @ankhi first of all you should fix it (with chkdsk in Windows). – Andrea Lazzarotto Jun 28 '16 at 12:48
  • I have only virtualbox windows hence I cant use chkdsk – ankhi Jul 6 '16 at 13:16
