NAME

ntfsinfo - dump a file's attributes  

SYNOPSIS

ntfsinfo [options] device  

DESCRIPTION

ntfsinfo will dump the attributes of inode inode-number or the file path-filename and/or information about the mft ( -m option). Run ntfsinfo without arguments for a full list of options.  

OPTIONS

Below is a summary of all the options that ntfsinfo 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.
-F, --file FILE
Show information about this file
-f, --force
This will override some sensible defaults, such as not overwriting an existing file. 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.
-m, --mft
Show information about the volume.
-q, --quiet
Produce less output.
-t, --notime
Do not display timestamps in the output.
-v, --verbose
Increase the amount of output that ntfsinfo prints.
-V, --version
Show the version number, copyright and license.
