Exclamation Can't mount partition?


I just installed Debian 9, and this happened.

I had installed Centos 6 before Debian 9.

It's a NTFS partition but it says Unknown.

Which probably means it's no longer NTFS. I don't use Debian but I'd expect it to ship with NTFS support. What do these commands return.
Code:
lsblk -f
sudo file-s /dev/sdb1

I installed grub on partition /dev/sdb. Could it be that?

The info you posted shows it is an ntfs filesystem on that partition. Did you try manually mounting it? Which version of windows are you using? Boot your installed windows and run chkdsk. If you can't boot the installed windows, use your windows installation DVD/usb and run chkdsk. If you don't have a windows installation DVD/usb, boot your Recovery CD you created when you first logged in to windows and select the Repair option. If you dont have any of those, you can try doing an online search. You should be able to download something, hopefully from the microsoft site. Only use a download from the specific version and release of windows you have installed.

Not sure why you would do that as Debian is on sda and windows is on sdb. Did you do this during the installation of Debian? You have an older Legacy/MBR install as there is no efi partition so installing Grub to the MBR of sdb would just mean setting sdb to first boot priority in the BIOS and it should then boot Debian and should have an entry for windows. If not, run as root os-prober and update-grub (or grub-mkconfig). If you installed Grub to the windows partition sdb1, good luck.
