ntfs-3g.probe - Probe an NTFS volume mountability


   ntfs-3g.probe <--readonly|--readwrite> volume


   The  ntfs-3g.probe  utility tests a volume if it's NTFS mountable read-
   only or read-write, and exits with a  status  value  accordingly.   The
   volume can be a block device or image file.


   Below is a summary of the options that ntfs-3g.probe accepts.

   -r, --readonly
          Test if the volume can be mounted read-only.

   -w, --readwrite
          Test if the volume can be mounted read-write.

   -h, --help
          Display help and exit.


   Test if /dev/sda1 can be mounted read-write:

          ntfs-3g.probe --readwrite /dev/sda1


   The exit codes are as follows:

   0      Volume is mountable.

   11     Syntax error, command line parsing failed.

   12     The volume doesn't have a valid NTFS.

   13     Inconsistent  NTFS,  hardware or device driver fault, or unsetup
          SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.

   14     The NTFS partition is hibernated.

   15     The volume was not cleanly unmounted.

   16     The volume is already exclusively opened and in use by a  kernel
          driver or software.

   17     Unsetup SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.

   18     Unknown reason.

   19     Not enough privilege to mount.

   20     Out of memory.

   21     Unclassified FUSE error.
