Fix: Ubuntu: Failed to open hiberfil.sys data attribute: No such file or directory

Opening NTFS partitions might be difficult if the filesystem goes corrupt while you’re on .

Error:

“Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 18: Failed to open hiberfil.sys data attribute: No such file or directory
Failed to mount ‘/dev/sdb1′: No such file or directory”

On fsck.ntfs file is not linked any more to utility to check filesystem also causes trouble to get the issue resolved automatically.

Even after finding this matter, manual run of fsck doesn’t seem to be making life smoother.

Following little option came to help in this situation:

mount -t -o remove_hiberfile /dev/sda2 /media/366C97626C971C25

Other simple fix that you might find is to run chkdsk on windows for the drive, but some of the ubuntu forums show that even that is not a good solution to make partition work on Linux.

Anyways remove_hirefile was good.
