I use Ubuntu 16.04 and Windows 10 in a dual boot mode. I need to share data between them, so I decided to keep the data on the Windows partition and let Ubuntu access it.
I know the old trick to disable hibernation and fast startup in Windows 10, so I did that. Still, Ubuntu couldn't mount the partition because it was hibernated. If I remember correctly, hibernated partitions used to be mounted as read only. So this is weird...
Further more, I attempted to reboot Windows in order to perform a real shut down and not hibernation, followed by booting into Ubuntu.
The same error message appeared and the partition wasn't mounted. Just to clarify further more, I tried auto mounting, as well as manual mounting the partition.
The same problem was replicated on a dual boot with Windows 10 and Debian 9.
I use m.2 pcie SSD and UEFI mode.
Here you can find couple of screenshots:
I have seen a similar question here: Can't access Windows drive: “Windows is hibernated, refused to mount”
It was suggested to just remove the hibernation file, but I am quite sure that I did a proper shut down and that no hibernation file should be there...
What is a worst case scenario when I delete this hibernation file?
EDIT: I also tried shutting Windows down with
shutdown /s /t 0, but that also didn't help.
All help is Welcome!
