ntfsls - list directory contents on an NTFS filesystem


   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


   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.


   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

   -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.
