mount_ntfs -- mount an NTFS file system
mount_ntfs [-a] [-i] [-u uid] [-g gid] [-m mask] [-C charset]
[-W u2wtable] special node
The mount_ntfs utility attaches the NTFS file system residing on the
device special to the global file system namespace at the location indicated
by node. This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot
time, but can be used by any user to mount an NTFS file system on any
directory that they own (provided, of course, that they have appropriate
access to the device that contains the file system).
The options are as follows:
-a Force behaviour to return MS-DOS 8.3 names also on readdir().
-i Make name lookup case insensitive for all names except POSIX
-u uid Set the owner of the files in the file system to uid. The
default owner is the owner of the directory on which the file
system is being mounted.
-g gid Set the group of the files in the file system to gid. The
default group is the group of the directory on which the file
system is being mounted.
Specify the maximum file permissions for files in the file system.
Specify local charset to convert Unicode file names. Currently
only reading is supported, thus the file system is to be mounted
Specify UNIX to Unicode translation table. See mount_msdosfs(8)
for the description of this option. This option is remained for
backward compatibility purpose, so please do not use this option.
This option will be removed in the future.
NTFS file attributes are accessed in following way:
`ATTRTYPE' is one of the identifiers listed in $AttrDef file of volume.
Default is $DATA. `ATTRNAME' is an attribute name. Default is none.
To mount an ntfs volume located in /dev/ad1s1:
# mount_ntfs /dev/ad1s1 /mnt
To get the volume name (in Unicode):
# cat /mnt/\$Volume:\$VOLUME_NAME
To read directory raw data:
# cat /mnt/foodir:\$INDEX_ROOT:\$I30
To mount a Japanese ntfs volume located in /dev/ad0s1:
# mount_ntfs -C eucJP /dev/ad0s1 /mnt
There is limited writing ability. Limitations: file must be nonresident
and must not contain any sparces (uninitialized areas); compressed files
are also not supported. The file name must not contain multibyte characters.

This utility is primarily used for read access to an NTFS volume. See
the WRITING section for details about writing to an NTFS volume.
The mount_ntfs utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.
The unicode conversion routine was added by Ryuichiro Imura
<email@example.com> at 2003.
The NTFS kernel implementation, mount_ntfs utility, and manual were written
by Semen Ustimenko <semenu@FreeBSD.org>.
