       ntfscluster - identify files in a specified region of an NTFS volume.

       ntfscluster [options] device

       ntfscluster has three modes of operation: info, sector and cluster.

       The  default mode, info is currently not implemented.  It will display general information
       about the NTFS volume when it is working.

       The sector mode will display a list of files that have data in the specified range of sec-

       The  cluster  mode  will  display a list of files that have data in the specified range of
       clusters.  When the cluster size is one sector, this will be equivalent to the sector mode
       of operation.

       Below  is  a summary of all the options that ntfscluster 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.

       -c, --cluster RANGE
	      Any files whose data is in this range of clusters will be displayed.

       -F, --filename NAME
	      Show information about this file.

       -f, --force
	      This  will override some sensible defaults, such as not working with a mounted vol-
	      ume.  Use this option with caution.

       -h, --help
	      Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.

       -I, --inode NUM
	      Show information about this inode.

       -i, --info
	      This option is not yet implemented.

       -q, --quiet
	      Reduce the amount of output to a minimum.  Naturally, it doesn't make sense to com-
	      bine this option with

       -s, --sector RANGE
	      Any files whose data is in this range of sectors will be displayed.

       -v, --verbose
	      Increase the amount of output that ntfscluster prints.

       -V, --version
	      Show the version number, copyright and license for ntfscluster.

       Get some information about the volume /dev/hda1.

	      ntfscluster /dev/hda1

       Look for files in the first 500 clusters of /dev/hda1.

	      ntfscluster -c 0-500 /dev/hda1

       The  info  mode	isn't implemented yet.	ntfscluster is quite limited, but it has no known
       bugs.  If you find a bug please send an email describing the problem  to  the  development

       ntfscluster was written by Richard Russon, with contributions from Anton Altaparmakov.  It
       was ported to ntfs-3g by Erik Larsson.

       ntfscluster is part of the ntfs-3g package and is available from:

       ntfsinfo(8), ntfsprogs(8)
