MOUNT_HFS(8) BSD System Manager's Manual MOUNT_HFS(8)
mount_hfs -- mount an HFS/HFS+ file system
mount_hfs [-e encoding] [-u uid] [-g gid] [-m mask] [-o options] [-w] [-x] special | node
The mount_hfs command attaches the HFS file system residing on the device special to the
global file system namespace at the location indicated by node. This command is normally
executed by mount(8) at boot time.
The options are as follows:
-e encoding (standard HFS volumes only)
Specify the Macintosh encoding. The following encodings are supported:
Arabic, ChineseSimp, ChineseTrad, Croatian, Cyrillic, Greek, Hebrew, Icelandic, Ja-
panese, Korean, Roman (default), Romanian, Thai, Turkish
-u uid Set the owner of the files in the file system to uid. The default owner is the
owner of the directory on which the file system is being mounted.
-g gid Set the group of the files in the file system to gid. The default group is the
group of the directory on which the file system is being mounted.
Specify the maximum file permissions for files in the file system. (For example, a
mask of 755 specifies that, by default, the owner should have read, write, and exe-
cute permissions for files, but others should only have read and execute permis-
sions. See chmod(1) for more information about octal file modes.) Only the nine
low-order bits of mask are used. The default mask is taken from the directory on
which the file system is being mounted.
-o Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of
options. See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.
-w Mount the HFS wrapper volume.
-x Disable execute permissions on a standard HFS file system.
mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)
Some HFS file systems with highly fragmented catalog files may not mount.
The mount_hfs utility first appeared in Mac OS X Server 1.0.
