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. – Rui F Ribeiro Feb 10 '18 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.
