Do what the message tells you to do. Connect the hard disk to a
computer running Windows XP or newer and run "CHKDSK /F" on it.

No, you can't do this from Ubuntu (to the best of my knowledge). To
fix a Windows disk you need a Windows computer.

It may be that your friend with Windows does not know how to safely
eject drives, in which case it's up to you to teach him.
