Hi, I have a dual boot system with Win8 and Fedora 18. So I have three partitions, Win8, Fedora 18 and another ntfs partition where I keep my files. I tried to mount this last partition in Fedora and I get this error message:

Error mounting /dev/sda4 at /run/media/myuser/Dados: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda4" "/run/media/myuser/Dados"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 1).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda4': Operação não permitida
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the 'ro' mount option.

How can I solve it? In Win8 I can access my files normally...

Thanks for the further help!

Boot Windows, have it run scandisk (or whatever it's called now) on that partition and do a complete reboot. I'm not making this an "answer" because I don't know for sure if this is what's needed, but most of the time it works. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

There's a section in the release notes on this. Win8 has a 'fast reboot' or 'Fast start' feature that can be disabled to prevent metadata caching, i believe.
