ntfscp - copy file to an NTFS volume.


   ntfscp [options] device source_file destination


   ntfscp will copy file to an NTFS volume. destination can be either file
   or directory. In case if destination is  directory  specified  by  name
   then  source_file is copied into this directory, in case if destination
   is directory and specified by inode number then unnamed data  attribute
   is  created  for this inode and source_file is copied into it (WARNING:
   it's unusual to have unnamed data streams  in  the  directories,  think
   twice before specifying directory by inode number).


   Below  is a summary of all the options that ntfscp 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, --attribute NUM
          Write to this attribute.

   -i, --inode
          Treat destination as inode number.

   -m, --min-fragments
          Minimize fragmentation when allocating space to  the  attribute.
          This is mostly useful when creating big files.

   -N, --attr-name NAME
          Write to attribute with this name.

   -n, --no-action
          Use  this  option  to make a test run before doing the real copy
          operation.  Volume will be opened read-only and no write will be

   -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.

   -q, --quiet
          Suppress some debug/warning/error messages.

   -V, --version
          Show the version number, copyright and license ntfscp.

   -v, --verbose
          Display more debug/warning/error messages.


   All data on NTFS is stored in streams, which can have names. A file can
   have more than one data streams, but exactly one must have no name. The
   size of a file is the size of its unnamed data stream. Usually when you
   don't specify stream name you are access to unnamed data stream. If you
   want access to named data stream you need to add ":stream_name" to  the
   filename.  For  example:  by  opening  "some.mp3:artist"  you will open
   stream "artist" in "some.mp3". But windows  usually  prevent  you  from
   accessing  to  named data streams, so you need to use some program like
   FAR or utils from cygwin to access named data streams.


   Copy new_boot.ini from  /home/user  as  boot.ini  to  the  root  of  an
   /dev/hda1 NTFS volume:

          ntfscp /dev/hda1 /home/user/new_boot.ini boot.ini

   Copy myfile to C:\some\path\myfile:stream (assume that /dev/hda1 letter
   in windows is C):

          ntfscp -N stream /dev/hda1 myfile /some/path


   There are no known problems with ntfscp. If you find a bug please  send
   an email describing the problem to the development team:


   ntfscp  was  written  by  Yura Pakhuchiy, with contributions from Anton
   Altaparmakov and Hil Liao.  It was ported to ntfs-3g by Erik Larsson.


   With love to Marina Sapego.
