NAME

ntfsls - list directory contents on an NTFS filesystem  

SYNOPSIS

ntfsls [options] device

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 ] device  

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.  

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 --. Any single letter options, that don't take an argument, can be combined into a single command, e.g. -fv is equivalent to -f -v. 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.
