Either your system crashed or you unplugged the drive before unmounting.

Boot windows and run error checking on the drive in question

or you can try to mount the partition using the force option, as root:
mount -t ntfs-3g -o foruce /dev/sda1 /media/disk

Be sure to unmount the partition prior to unpluging the drive if this is a USB drive in linux or use the safely remove hardware icon in windows.
