Topic: Lost Partition
I have been using gparted for many years without any problems until now.
I have dual boot system Win 10/Ubuntu, and it looks like I kinda lost my Windows drive. When I boot with gparted my Windows 10 drive (/dev/sda2) Has a yellow exclamation point next to it.
When I select information I see "Unable to read the contents of the file system!" I can however mount the drive via the command line, and all the files appear to be there. I have opened a couple of files. gparted is able to detect another larger NTFS partition fine.
This happened after I re-partitioned an external drive that I used to clone my internal drive. Windows could not use the external drive because there was a drive signature collision. I changed the UUID of my external drive, and after I did that windows will not boot nor can I see my OS drive when I attempt to use a Windows recover disk.
When I look in /dev/disk/by-uuid all of the partitions on /dev/sda have unique ids. I am not sure why Windows will not boot I assume it is the same reason gparted can not see my OS partition (/dev/sda2) but I do not see a reason.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
