ntfs-3g.probe - Probe an NTFS volume mountability
ntfs-3g.probe <--readonly|--readwrite> volume
The ntfs-3g.probe utility tests a volume if it's NTFS mountable read-only or read-write, and exits with a status value accordingly. The
volume can be a block device or image file.
Below is a summary of the options that ntfs-3g.probe accepts.
Test if the volume can be mounted read-only.
Test if the volume can be mounted read-write.
Display help and exit.
Test if /dev/sda1 can be mounted read-write:
ntfs-3g.probe --readwrite /dev/sda1
The exit codes are as follows:
0 Volume is mountable.
11 Syntax error, command line parsing failed.
12 The volume doesn't have a valid NTFS.
13 Inconsistent NTFS, hardware or device driver fault, or unsetup SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.
14 The NTFS partition is hibernated.
15 The volume was not cleanly unmounted.
16 The volume is already exclusively opened and in use by a kernel driver or software.
17 Unsetup SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.
