ntfsinfo - dump a file's attributes
ntfsinfo [options] device
ntfsinfo will dump the attributes of inode inode-number or the file path-filename and/or information about the mft ( -m option). Run ntfs- info without arguments for a full list of 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. -F, --file FILE Show information about this file -f, --force This will override some sensible defaults, such as not overwriting an existing file. 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. -m, --mft Show information about the volume. -q, --quiet Produce less output. -t, --notime Do not display timestamps in the output. -v, --verbose Increase the amount of output that ntfsinfo prints. -V, --version Show the version number, copyright and license.
