An error occurred while accessing ‘Elements’, the system responded: The requested operation has failed: Error mounting /dev/sdc1 at /run/media/brijesh/Elements: Unknown error when mounting /dev/sdc1


Not too sure how to fix this however you should never force shutdown by the power button. Have a read of this so you can safely shutdown in future [Tip] Enable Magic SysRq Key (REISUB)
