    Can't mount HDD after restart

    I have a bunch of HDD connected to my pc, and one of them is named "Lacie NTFS" as "sdc" with 2 partition (sdc1 which i can access, and sdc2)
    Well, I may have deleted some windows folder from the sdc2 (something like windowsapp or something) but i was able to access it before. Sadly, after the restart, When I try to open the partition it says :

    "Error mounting /dev/sdc2 at /media/ruben/Lacie NTFS DOCS:
    Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=100 0" "/dev/sdc2" "/media/ruben/Lacie NTFS DOCS"'
    exited with non-zero exit status 13: ntfs_mst_post_read_fixup_warn: magic: 0xffffffff size: 1024 usa_ofs: 65535 usa_count: 65534: Invalid argument
    Record 6 has no FILE magic (0xffffffff)
    Failed to open inode FILE_Bitmap: Input/output error
    Failed to mount '/dev/sdc2': Input/output error
    NTFS is either inconsistent, or there is a hardware fault, or it's a
    SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware. In the first case run chkdsk /f on Windows
    then reboot into Windows twice. The usage of the /f parameter is very
    important! If the device is a SoftRAID/FakeRAID then first activate
    it and mount a different device under the /dev/mapper/ directory, (e.g.
    /dev/mapper/nvidia_eahaabcc1). Please see the 'dmraid' documentation
    for more details."

    Problem is, I don't have WIndows anymore on my PC, but I am sure there is a linux magic software out there than can solve my problem in 2 seconds. I already found a thread from 2011 from a guy with the same problem and he said a package called NTFSprogs resolved it but sadly it seems it became obsolete.
    Any ideas ?

    ntfsprogs was merged with ntfs-3g in 2011:

    Try installing ntfs-3g:

    sudo apt install ntfs-3g
    If ntfs-3g wasn't installed then the drive may have been slightly corrupt without the software.

    You could try the instructions using ntfs-3g and see if that works. If that doesn't work I know you can run Linux's version of chkdsk /f:

    sudo umount /dev/sdc
    sudo fsck /dev/sdc
    sudo mount /dev/sdc /media/ruben/Lacie
