"The disk contains an unclean file system" on Ubuntu 14.04(installed next to Win 8.1)
 
Hope this fits in here...

I'm having trouble accessing the partitions used by my Windows installation.

I have recently installed Ubuntu 14.04 next to Windows 8.1 on my computer, but on different harddisks.
Before installing Win 8.1 and Ubuntu, I was using Win 7 and tried Ubuntu using a thumbstick. While in the live session, there wasn't any issue opening images or playing videos and music.

Now I get this rather long error message:

Code:

Error mounting /dev/sda7 at /media/matthiash/Eigene Dateien: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda7" "/media/matthiash/Eigene Dateien"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda7': Operation not permitted
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.

I suspected a erroneous Windows-shutdown so i booted into Windows and made sure it would shutdown properly. Then I booted Ubuntu again, same error :(

What can I do? I don't want to manage my files in Windows and Ubuntu separately.

I did chkdsk /f on every partition. Didn't change a thing :(

How to disable or enable Fast Startup in Windows 8.1 Disable it.

Or could be shutting down to a hybrid state. I think it is unlikely since it usually can't boot like that. Bios prevent's boot.

"Please resume and shutdown

Did you try read only? Might as well try ntfs-3g explicitly.

Unclean file system (0,0) - can't install LinuxMint - ntfs in unsafe state
 
I tried to install Linux over an old Windows installation but it sticks at this point. If Windows was still there I could use the fix offered here but as its gone I can't. How do I get round it?
