My Machine dual boots windows 10 and Bunsenlabs. Hard drives are encrypted with VeraCrypt. The second Hard drive became read only now (one internal one external).
Windows created "$RECYCLE.BIN" and "System Volume Information" folders on both internal and external hard drives. usually I could just delete them under Linux. When I boot into Bunsenlabs and mount the internal hard drive in VeraCrypt, it is read/write. As soon as I touch a single file in those two folders, the drive goes read only. It also goes read only when I backup with backintime.
Things I tried:
- chmod -R 777 as root
- Thunar as root
- mount in VeraCrypt under different path
- disabled fast startup under windows and rebooted (Linux and Windows)
- Use a command line tool under windows to delete "$RECYCLE.BIN" and "System Volume Information" folders, I cannot remember which one now
a) How can I make the drive permanently r/w again?
b) how can I get rid of "$RECYCLE.BIN" and "System Volume Information" folders?
