I am trying to mount a USB harddrive with NTFS. Ubuntu displays this eror message:

enter image description here
sudo fixntfs didn't resolve the problem.

linuxcomprrrr@rr-a-computer:/home/rrrr# sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdd1

Volume is corrupt. You should run chkdsk.

How can I fix the volume from Ubuntu?

    Don't think you can. You have to use Windows to fix the filesystem, and in case of a hardware fault, you need to replace the device. – mikewhatever Nov 26 '17 at 2:28
  • Linux user still needs Windows to fix disks? This is unfortunate :( – Victor Forest Nov 26 '17 at 2:34
  • Not sure what did you expect. There is no magic linux command that can fix all filesystem errors and all hardware faults. – mikewhatever Nov 26 '17 at 3:55
  • @Victor Forest Windows still doesn't support ext4 at all. Shame. – jdwolf Nov 26 '17 at 4:25
  • @jdwolf There is a driver for Windows. – mikewhatever Nov 26 '17 at 4:30

ntfsfix can only do basic NTFS repair tasks. It's main functionality is marking the file system dirty so that Windows will automatically scan it.
