NAME
ntfsls - list directory contents on an NTFS filesystem SYNOPSIS
ntfsls [options] device ntfsls [ -a | --all ] [ -F | --classify ] [ -f | --force ] [ -h | --help ] [ -i | --inode ] [ -l | --long ] [ -p | --path PATH ] [ -q | --quiet ] [ -s | --system ] [ -V | --version ] [ -v | --verbose ] [ -x | --dos ] device DESCRIPTION
ntfsls is used to list information about the files specified by the PATH option (the root directory by default). DEVICE is the special file corresponding to the device (e.g /dev/hdXX) or an NTFS image file. OPTIONS
Below is a summary of all the options that ntfsls 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. -a, --all Display all files. If this option is not specified file names in the POSIX namespace will not be displayed. -F, --classify Append indicator (one of */=@|) to entries. -f, --force Force execution. For example necessary to run on an NTFS partition stored in a normal file. -h, --help Print the usage information of ntfsls and exit. -i, --inode Print inode number of each file. This is the MFT reference number in NTFS terminology. -l, --long Use a long listing format. -p, --path PATH The directory whose contents to list or the file (including the path) about which to display information. -q, --quiet Suppress some debug/warning/error messages. -R, --recursive Show the contents of all directories beneath the specified directory. -s, --system Unless this options is specified, all files beginning with a dollar sign character will not be listed as these files are usually system files. -v, --verbose Display more debug/warning/error messages. -V, --version Print the version number of ntfsls and exit. -x, --dos Display short file names, i.e. files in the DOS namespace, instead of long file names, i.e. files in the WIN32 namespace. BUGS
There are no known problems with ntfsls. If you find a bug please send an email describing the problem to the development team: ntfs-3g-devel@lists.sf.net AUTHORS

NAME
ntfscat - print NTFS files and streams on the standard output SYNOPSIS
[options] device [file] DESCRIPTION
ntfscat will read a file or stream from an NTFS volume and display the contents on the standard output. The case of the filename passed to ntfscat is ignored. OPTIONS
Below is a summary of all the options that ntfscat 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. -a, --attribute TYPE Display the contents of a particular attribute type. By default, the unnamed $DATA attribute will be shown. The attribute can be specified by a number in decimal or hexadecimal, or by name. +-------------------------------------------+ |Hex Decimal Name | |0x10 16 "$STANDARD_INFORMATION" | |0x20 32 "$ATTRIBUTE_LIST" | |0x30 48 "$FILE_NAME" | |0x40 64 "$OBJECT_ID" | |0x50 80 "$SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR" | |0x60 96 "$VOLUME_NAME" | |0x70 112 "$VOLUME_INFORMATION" | |0x80 128 "$DATA" | |0x90 144 "$INDEX_ROOT" | |0xA0 160 "$INDEX_ALLOCATION" | |0xB0 176 "$BITMAP" | |0xC0 192 "$REPARSE_POINT" | |0xD0 208 "$EA_INFORMATION" | |0xE0 224 "$EA" | |0xF0 240 "$PROPERTY_SET" | |0x100 256 "$LOGGED_UTILITY_STREAM" | +-------------------------------------------+ Notes The attribute names may be given without the leading $ symbol. If you use the $ symbol, you must quote the name to prevent the shell interpreting the name. -n, --attribute-name NAME Display this named attribute, stream. -i, --inode NUM Specify a file by its inode number instead of its name. -f, --force This will override some sensible defaults, such as not using a mounted volume. Use this option with caution. -h, --help Show a list of options with a brief description of each one. -q, --quiet Suppress some debug/warning/error messages. -V, --version Show the version number, copyright and license ntfscat. -v, --verbose Display more debug/warning/error messages. EXAMPLES
Display the contents of a file in the root of an NTFS volume. ntfscat /dev/hda1 boot.ini Display the contents of a file in a subdirectory of an NTFS volume. ntfscat /dev/hda1 /winnt/system32/drivers/etc/hosts Display the contents of the $INDEX_ROOT attribute of the root directory (inode 5). ntfscat /dev/hda1 -a INDEX_ROOT -i 5 | hexdump -C BUGS
