I have an external drive formatted as ntfs that when plugged into my linux machine can be accessed and used.  But when I plug it into my Windows 8.1 and 10 machines those can not access it.  I shows up but when I attempt to access the data it says that it is unreadable and corrupt.  Any suggestions on what to do are appreciated.

Hi Scott


I would suggest you back up any important files to USB using Linux if you have not already done so, Just in case.
