Repair corrupted NTFS partition

I just had to repair an NTFS partition on my USB-Stick,

it seems it got corrupted when unplugging it.

 sudo ntfsfix /dev/[device name]

Replace [device name] with the partition you want to recover. (e.g. “sdb1”)
And that’s it!
All the files on the stick were recovered :)

You can install the required packages using:

sudo apt-get install ntfs-3g ntfsprogs

Many Thanks to for the initial tutorial!
