invisible files on external 3TiB GPT USB Disk
After researching for ages and posting to different boards I finally found here. I'll get straight to the point:
When I mount my external 3 TiB USB disk which uses GPT (because I couldn't use the whole 3TiB otherwise) with
sudo mount -t ntfs-3g -r /dev/sdb1 /media/sdb1
it does so without complain, but when I navigate through some of the folders (which all _seem_ to be visible) there are no files in it.
It doesn't seem to follow a pattern, some folders with only latin names have nothing in them, some folders with nordic letters do.. so the names shouldn't have anything to do with the problem. The folders which seem to be empty are always the same though.
If I try to do the same from the console it gives:
ls: lese Verzeichnis .: Eingabe-/Ausgabefehler
"reading directory: input/output error"
the log at /var/log/everything.log outputs this after trying to ls:
Nov 2 19:04:52 localhost ntfs-3g: Actual VCN (0x8) of index buffer is different from expected VCN (0x1) in inode 0x9f.
Of course I've read the FAQ and everything. The hardware is working superb, already used multiple disk-checkers on windows (which takes almost a whole day for a 3TiB disk..).
But since I'd like to use linux more often, I _need_ that disk working.
It's an archlinux system by the way.
