  • this is a USB disk guys – Edgy1 Apr 12 '17 at 2:25
  • In that case, see here. It's pretty much the same answer though, use ntfsfix: askubuntu.com/questions/500647/… – mchid Apr 12 '17 at 2:27
  • Look at the system log (usually /var/log/syslog) and dmesg right after that error comes up - what do they say? If it's input/output errors that points to bad hardware, or at least bad USB connections. – Xen2050 Apr 12 '17 at 2:37
  • @mchid that answered my question! please make an answer with that information and i will accept/upvote. thanks! – Edgy1 Apr 12 '17 at 2:48

Install ntfs-3g package, by running

sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g

and then run

sudo ntfsfix /dev/[DRIVE_NAME]


sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdc1
