No.
The only project that safely (at least according to themselves) writes to NTFS is http://www.jankratochvil.net/project/captive/
but I don't think even they have repair tools for NTFS.

(and regarding your english: dew is the wet stuff on the grass on cold mornings. What you're trying to say is "due".
Other than that it's perfect.)

By your statement

I am assuming you have a similar problem I dealt with a couple months ago for a workmate.

here is a snippet of the problem I was trying to fix for a workmate.

guy did a hard shutdown in Windows XP Pro and since has not been able to boot. Gets a nasty screen saying it was preventing boot so it does not hurt hardware
If you get a similar error screen as described above, the link below will guide you to fix it (read about the "CHKDSK" command):

This was my original post on the topic:

Hope this helps.
