Bug Description

There should be a force option when ntfs3g is not able to mount Windows partitions due failed shutdown, and there should be more user friendly dialogs for dealing with the errors.

Now two error dialog appears:
1)
Unable to mount Storage
Unable to mount the volume 'Storage'. Followed by the error log of mount command.
2)
Unable to mount Storage
DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

(Storage is the name of the partition)
