Ubuntu crashed randomly and had to hard reset the system, now when I boot my machine I get an error has occurred while mounting media/Disk_2 (Disk 2 is a secondary hard disk) I am faced with either skip mounting that disk or manual mounting

Skipping it will take me to a terminal login, logged in i can see all my files using ln. The hard disk is in read only mode.

Mounting manually i can see the boot log 'EXT2-fs (sdb3): error:ext2_lookup: deleted inode referenced: 175'

I don't know what really to do or how to get back into GUI mode
