SYNOPSIS

ntfsinfo [options] device

DESCRIPTION

ntfsinfo will dump the attributes of inode inode-number or the file path-filename and/or information about the mft ( -m option). Run ntfsinfo without arguments for a full list of options.

OPTIONS

Below is a summary of all the options that ntfsinfo accepts. Nearly all options have two equivalent names. The short name is preceded by and the long name is preceded by -. Any single letter options, that don't take an argument, can be combined into a single command, e.g. -fv is equivalent to -f -v. Long named options can be abbreviated to any unique prefix of their name.
