Safe umount

Hi All,

Most of us dont do a safe un-mount or rather a umount.

And most of us use XP - the door OS ;) 

This above leads to a peculiar problem for the pen drive - when its mounted in Linux - and also if the partition is of NTFS type only.

We will not be able to mount the ntfs partitions during this time.

There is a package called ntfsprogs using which we can solve this issue using the below command:

ntfsfix /dev/mount_point

This above command resets the ntfs journal file.

[Try this at your own risk.]

Take care,
Ananth S Gouri
