Repairing N.T. File-systems

If an N.T.F.S. has errors on it, NTFS-3G will mount it as read only. To fix an N.T.F.S. load Windows and run its disk checking program.
To repair the file system without booting Microsoft Windows, the device must already be unmounted. For example, to fix an N.T.F.S. partition residing in /dev/sda2:
# umount /dev/sda2
# ntfsfix /dev/sda2
Mounting volume... OK
Processing of $MFT and $MFTMirr completed successfully.
NTFS volume version is 3.1.
NTFS partition /dev/sda2 was processed successfully.
# mount /dev/sda2

If all went well, the partition will now be writable.
