The only project that safely (at least according to themselves) writes to NTFS is
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
Due to some hardware problem my NTFS partition has some errors now
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.
