As we know we can use command chkdsk to check and repair NTFS partitions in Windows system.In Ubuntu,we can use utility “ntfsfix” to fix SOME common ntfs problem.
First,umount the ntfs partition,then you can use below command to do a “chkdsk”
sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY
replace X and Y with your disk number and Partition number
ntfsfix is part of the ntfsprogs package,so if you can’t find this command in your ubuntu,you can install it using below command
sudo apt-get install ntfsprogs
ntfsfix is NOT a Linux version of chkdsk. It only repairs some fundamental NTFS inconsistencies, resets the NTFS journal file and schedules an NTFS consistency check for the first boot into Windows.
So if ntfsfix can’t fix your issue,you still need to boot from a Windows boot disc/disk to repair your ntfs partition using chkdsk
