Read-write NTFS driver for Linux
The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, freely available read/write NTFS
driver, which provides safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows
Server 2003, Windows 2000 and Windows Vista filesystems. Almost the full
POSIX filesystem functionality is supported, the major exceptions are
changing the file ownerships and the access rights.
The purpose of the project is to develop, continuously quality test and
support a trustable, featureful and high performance solution for hardware
platforms and operating systems whose users need to reliably interoperate
with NTFS. Besides this practical goal, the project also aims to explore
the limits of the hybrid, kernel/user space filesystem driver approach,
performance, reliability and feature richness per invested effort wise.
The driver is in STABLE status. The test methods, the test suites used and
testimonials can be found on:
