    Default Desktop crash whenever I access an NTFS partition

    I have several NTFS partition mounted from several hdd mounted automatically and on demand, one of then keep crashing my whole desktop. Im not sure if this happen to all mounted disk or even related to NTFS, but there is this one disk that consistently upsetting my system.

    Whenever I access it., after a while my desktop session would freeze, however other application like firefox and music player will keep running normally ( terminal still work but opening a new process gives some kind of output error)
    The only way to get out of this is by doing hard reset.

    I can still get out from graphical session (but just that. I cant login nor restart the session)
    There will be long, unreadable fast scrolling, some kind of error message, after a while it stop , giving me this.



    My fstab:
    Code:
    razi@localhost:~> cat /etc/fstab 
    UUID=115e445e-db42-4e1c-a77b-24e74194b0a2 swap                 swap       defaults              0 0
    UUID=a361350d-7b4b-4836-ab58-0b8781bbc703 /                    ext4       acl,user_xattr        1 1
    UUID=D3EC-C93B       /boot/efi            vfat       umask=0002,utf8=true  0 0

    I/O errors with a specific sector means the drive is going to die in the near future as it has exhausted its reserved sectors. The freezing comes from the system trying to reset the drive and re-read the broken sector.

    In other words; replace the drive, it's going to blow up on you sooner or later.

    Apparently it solved when I remove extra, unnecessary mount parameter created by gnome disk.
    I dont exactly know which parameter and which file triggers the problem and how it related in any way to my problem. But well, my pc doesnt crash and im happy with that.

    new fstab
    localhost:/home/razi # cat /etc/fstab
    UUID=115e445e-db42-4e1c-a77b-24e74194b0a2 swap swap defaults 0 0

    At first i thought it was hdd problem but when I boot into windows it work smoothly. I even run antivirus scan (to access every file to trigger any bad sector), but the disk is fine.

    You should check the SMART status for the device, for example Crystaldiskinfo ( https://crystalmark.info/software/Cr...o/index-e.html ) can do this for you if you are running Windows or alternatively gsmartcontrol or smartmontools for Linux
