ntfs-3g Unclean shutdowns

When I tried mounting an USB external HDD which is formatted in ntfs, I got this this error message mentioning an unclean shutdown. Obviously I could've used -o force option to force the mount but I googled to find a solution.

This error is probably because of not safely removing the USB Drive and which could be fixed using ntfsfix.

(ntfsfix is included in the ntfsprogs Debian package)

# aptitude install ntfsprogs
# ntfsfix /dev/sdc6
