3. 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.

4. 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

R -- . Any single letter options, that don't take an argument, can be combined into a single command, e.g.

-fv is equivalent to

R 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.
