Subject description: Files are read-only when you boot into Puppy
 

Today I upgraded to the new Windows 10. I had Windows 7, but it kept bugging me to hit the button and upgrade. This was an optimal time since I could take the risk of my computer being messed up for a couple days.

This is my home PC, and boots into Fatdog when I connect my USB drive. Otherwise, it boots into Windows.

The issue came up when I booted into Fatdog, and found that it would only allow read-only operations on my hard drive and raid drives! I could not figure out what was causing it! I tried changing ownerships and such in Windows 10, only to find that the problem still wasn't resolved. This was eating up a large portion of my evening!

Finally, I came across something that explains how Windows 10 has a "fast restart" mechanism and how it can be turned off. Then I opened a command prompt and used "shutdown /p" to shutdown windows without any sort of hibernation.

This worked for me, and my Fatdog was able to work with the files on my hard drives.

SO-- if anyone else has a similar problem after installing Windows 10 -- consider turning off the "fast restart" option in windows (under Power Options). It worked for me.

Hey thanks, vvvora, I love FatDog, but dislike W10. Trying to help my father-in-law with W10 upgrade disasters has ruined a few peaceful nights. I will do my best to avoid it, but the day will come when I have a W10 machine to deal with. I'll tuck this tip in the back of my mind 'til then.

Hi vvvora
I had a similar problem which I described in the following post.
Basically I came to the same conclusion as you did that Fast start was messing
up.

One may just need to put the mount option
Quote:
remove_hiberfile
Unlike in case of read-only mount, the read-write mount is denied if the NTFS volume is hibernated.
One needs either to resume Windows and shutdown it properly,
or use this option which will remove the Windows hibernation file. Please
note, this means that the saved Windows session will be completely lost. Use this
option for your own responsibility.


into puppy's /bin/mount script in the ntfs-3g section .

( see man ntfs-3g ) .

I installed Win 10 just so I could test and play a game I regularly play on Android. (World of Tanks Blitz).
First thing I did was disable Fast Boot.
Heck I disabled Hibernation altogether.

Everything is fine now.
