Well that depends on the filesystem. Usually you can run fsck although that's only a wrapper to the specific filesystem check program. Since it's a windows drive you will probably have to do dosfsck. You can check all the different filesystems it would support by running 'ls /sbin/fsck*'
Read the manpages for all the options you can specify. You would probably want -r and -t.
