When i started working with linux mint this partition was working well then mounting error began to appear and i solved it doing:

sudo ntfsfix dev/sda 

mounting error came many times, but this time after solving mounting error using this code another error came says:

(Sorry, could not display all the contents of "partition name": Error when getting information for file '(partition location)/found.000': Input/output error)

Note: I have windows os too, in the same computer, and I don't use a virtual machine. And I checked that partition in windows and it works well.error image

    Use only the NTFS partition for reading. The writing functionality from Linux is not entirely stable. Feb 10, 2018 at 16:39

If you're using Windows 10, it has a Fast Startup feature that essentially hibernates the OS instead of really shutting down. As a result, NTFS filesystems are left in open state, which makes them unmountable in Linux, unless you first use ntfsfix.

On dual-boot systems, it is probably best to disable Windows Fast Startup if you want to access the NTFS filesystems from the Linux side.

sudo ntfsfix dev/sda 

I'm guessing this is not an exact representation of the command you used. Running ntfsfix on the whole /dev/sda disk instead of just the NTFS partition (e.g. /dev/sdaN where N is a number) is not advisable and might cause filesystem corruption issues.
