Unable to mount NTFS partition

My external hard drive failed to mount its NTFS partition giving me the following error:
"on-zero exit status 13: $MFT must be non-resident. Failed to load $MFT: Input/output error Failed to mount '/dev/sdd1': Input/output error".
I thought I ruined once again my NTFS partition (this happens every now and then, because of my reckless copying of files), but the answer was quite simple.
I executed:
$sudo ntfsfix /dev/sdd1
and that fixed the problem immediately. Obviously this time I didn't make quite a mess.
