You want help. You do not "need" help.
How about remounting the drive and retry the copy operation?

I can't copy files because the portable hdd has a ntfs file which only allows read write. I get an
error saying i/o error when transferring files.

Plug it into a Windows machine and tell it to repair the filesystem.

How about not using NTFS?
What's the reason for that?

I'd format it to ext4 if it's not going to be used on a Windows system.

You should also read the LQ rules and posting tips - find links in right sidebar.

First, you should give your thread a more useful title. The title allows others to quickly determine whether they have the necessary knowledge, or desire, to help you.

Also, please be respectful of others. While you may think that your post is cute and clever, others may not, and may find it overtly offensive.

Use of insulting and unnecessarily vulgar language is not welcomed in any place where intelligent people meet. It is also against LQ rules. Un-clever mis-spellings do little to mask it.

Yes, First things first.
I'm not sure what Linux can do for that partition, it's been a loooong day.
gParted "check" function maybe?

The linux error says run windows chkdsk and then reboot in windows twice. From there you can pull your data off in Windows.

In my case. My bike tuner Windows 10 laptop comes in to save the day. If no access to a Windows computer.
Oh well. That is what you get for leaving the "H" out of your thread title. It just sux to be you today.

If you don't need to share data with a Windows system, don't use NTFS.
If your data is important to you, make a backup.

As for recovery, use a Windows system, after all NTFS is a Windows filesystem. If you don't have access to a Windows system, all I can say is good luck.

I believe that is what is meant by "backup, backup, backup".

My backups have backups and that has a backup.
