Fixing NTFS devices in Ubuntu

I am running Zorin OS 5 which is based on Ubuntu. I had a NTFS drive which was somehow corrupted. This is how I fixed the issue:

Install ntfsprogs package:

Find the drive’s device path:

Unmount the drive if already mounted:

Run ntfsfix tool to fix common NTFS issues:

Now mount again and have fun:

That was simple, no? 😀
