ntfscluster - identify files in a specified region of an NTFS volume.
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
ntfscluster [options] device
3. DESCRIPTION ▲
ntfscluster has three modes of operation: info , sectorand cluster .
3.1. Info ▲
The default mode, infois currently not implemented. It will display general information about the NTFS volume when it is working.
3.2. Sector ▲
The sectormode will display a list of files that have data in the specified range of sectors.
3.3. Cluster ▲
The clustermode will display a list of files that have data in the specified range of clusters. When the cluster size is one sector, this will be equivalent to the sectormode of operation.
4. OPTIONS ▲
Below is a summary of all the options that
ntfscluster 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.
- -c, --cluster RANGE
Any files whose data is in this range of clusters will be displayed.
- -F, --filename NAME
Show information about this file.
- -f, --force
This will override some sensible defaults, such as not working with a mounted volume. Use this option with caution.
- -h, --help
Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.
- -I, --inode NUM
Show information about this inode.
- -i, --info
This option is not yet implemented.
- -q, --quiet
Reduce the amount of output to a minimum. Naturally, it doesn't make sense to combine this option with
- -s, --sector RANGE
Any files whose data is in this range of sectors will be displayed.
- -v, --verbose
Increase the amount of output that
- -V, --version
Show the version number, copyright and license for
R ntfscluster .
5. EXAMPLES ▲
Get some information about the volume /dev/hda1.
Look for files in the first 500 clusters of /dev/hda1.
ntfscluster -c 0-500 /dev/hda1
6. BUGS ▲
The infomode isn't implemented yet.
