ntfsls − list directory contents on an NTFS filesystem
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 ] −d | −−device DEVICE
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).
Display all files. If this option is not specified file names in the POSIX namespace will not be displayed.
Append indicator (one of */=@|) to entries.
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.
Print inode number of each file. This is the MFT reference number in NTFS terminology.
Use a long listing format.
The directory whose contents to list or the file (including the path) about which to display information.
Suppress some debug/warning/error messages.
Unless this options is specified, all files beginning with a dollar sign character will not be listed as these files are usually system files.
Print the version number of ntfsls and exit.
Display more debug/warning/error messages.
Display short file names, i.e. files in the DOS namespace, instead of long file names, i.e. files in the WIN32 namespace.
−d, −−device DEVICE
The special file corresponding to the device that contains the NTFS partition to read. If you want to use an image of an NTFS partition stored on a normal file, you will also need to specify the −f or −−force options.
