ntfsfix fix NTFS not mount from Linux

Today, I have not mount usb external USB into Fedora 32. External USB drive is NTFS formatted. 
I will installed ntfs-3g  package for fedora as below:

sudo dnf install ntfs-3g ntfsprogs

The first, check your device address , you run this command as below

sudo fdisk -l
# or
lsblk -f

The output device is /dev/sdXY (where X and Y are the letter of the drive's device and Y is the partition number). 
So in my case /dev/sdc1 is usb  drive external NTFS formatted. you will replace "device name" with your windows partition ( ex: /dev/sdb1 or /dev/sdd1 .v.v)

How to do fix it

Now, Open your terminal and run command to fix a Corrupted Windows NTFS Filesystem with Linux

[[email protected] ~]$ sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdc1
