I am using Mint. Everything was fine until three days ago. I wanted to create a file but I discover that my external HDD has read-only mode (file system is NTFS). I didn't change anything before but OK, maybe it was just a little error. I fix it pretty quickly. But even now I can't create any file or directory, also I can't edit any existing file (actuality I can but file get error and I get senseless combination of random symbols and "\00\00\"). When I try to create text file or directory I get next error:
root@mint:/media/mint/A47A802C7A7FF97E# cat > text.txt bash: text.txt: No such file or directory root@mint:/media/mint/A47A802C7A7FF97E# mkdir -p directory mkdir: cannot create directory ‘directory’: No such file or directory
Running with sudo also doesn't help. It worked thousand times before but not now. Is my drive gone or I do something wrong? I found a lot of different solutions but there is no my one. I hope there is really simple way to fix that.
UPD: I am sure that drive is really rw.
But I run
ntfsfix --no-action /dev/sdX and get
NTFS signature is missing. Unrecoverable error Volume is corrupt. You should run chkdsk. No change made
sudo fsck /dev/sdX detected a difference between original boot sector and its backup.
