Mount error :

Hello everyone,

I’m encountering an issue when attempting to mount the filesystem on /dev/sda1.
Whenever I try to mount /dev/sda1, I receive the error message “error mounting /dev/sda1.”

but, now I have fixed this error by using the mentioned command

sudo ntfsfix /dev/sda1

I don’t have any idea about this error, please explain this error

Welcome Ilavarasu. NTFS file system is developed by Windows. Different file system has different architect in journaling the data read and write operations. Though Linux has the different and wide variety of file systems to date like “btrfs” for compatibility they do also support NTFS but you might face many bugs like this. You can man ntfsfix to know more on the tool which it helps to check the disk for bad sectors and fix any minimal errors. There is a driver called ntfs-3g which you can install on the Debian systems with command sudo apt install ntfs-3g and once done, mount the drive with mentioning file type flag -t sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda5 /mnt/myntfsdrive

Where sda is storage device a and 5 is the partition sector. Use lsblk -f to find the right device and partition.
