Hi, I had to boot into windows to do some stuff, after I was done I booted back into fedora. When I tried to open pycharm I get an error about workspace.xml being read-only. I did not even touch pycharm on windows.
@alextrune, it’s a widely known problem with Win8 and Win10 and dualboot (not only with Linux – with MacOS and maybe even with Win7 too). I think (haven’t checked) it’s discussed or pointed to in the links @vgataera gave you.
In short Windows8/10’s fast boot feature doesn’t leave ntfs volumes properly cleanly unmounted on shutdown (but Windows always does fully unmount them on reboot). If you change data from Linux on such a Windows partition in this “unclean” state – you risk loosing your changes or even loosing some Windows’s data that already were there.
In short: make sure to not access Windows partitions in such a state :). It’s recommended to disable fast boot feature in Windows if you’re dualbooting with anything. Also Win10 is known to reenable it – especially after some earlier Windows release upgrades, maybe not anymore – still it’s prudent to check if it’s still disabled from time to time.
