Deepin: Solved Read/Write error in NTFS drive

I was getting an error whenever i was trying to Write/Move files in NTFS drive (Deepin).

Unable to access Drive/RW Protected

Error mounting /dev/sda4 at /media/dump: Command-line `mount -t “ntfs” -o “uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177” “/dev/sda4” “/media/rolindroy/Media Center”‘ exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount ‘/dev/sda4’: Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the ‘ro’ mount option

Use this in the terminal , if u can’t access Windows.

sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdXY

where XY is the partition

e.g sda2 or sdb1

(then mount

sudo mount -o rw /dev/sdXY)

I couldnt mount so i restarted it and it was working. I was able to Write/Move again.
