NTFSCLUSTER(8)              System Manager's Manual             NTFSCLUSTER(8)



NAME
       ntfscluster - identify files in a specified region of an NTFS volume.

SYNOPSIS
       ntfscluster [ options ] device

DESCRIPTION
       ntfscluster has three modes of operation: info, sector and cluster.

   Info
       The  default  mode, info is currently not implemented.  It will display
       general information about the NTFS volume when it is working.

   Sector
       The sector mode will display a list of files  that  have  data  in  the
       specified range of sectors.

   Cluster
       The  cluster  mode  will  display a list of files that have data in the
       specified range of clusters.  When the cluster size is one sector, this
       will be equivalent to the sector mode of operation.

OPTIONS
       Below  is  a  summary of all the options that ntfscluster accepts.  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.

       -c range
       --cluster range
              Any files whose data is in this range of clusters will  be  dis-
              played.

       -f
       --force
              This  will  override some sensible defaults, such as not working
              with a mounted volume.  Use this option with caution.

       --help Show a list of options with a brief description of each one.

       -i
       --info This option is not yet implemented.

       -q
       --quiet
              Reduce the amount of output to a minimum.  Naturally, it doesn't
              make sense to combine this option with

       -s
       --sector
              Any  files  whose  data is in this range of sectors will be dis-
              played.

       -v
       --verbose
              Increase the amount of output that ntfscluster prints.

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

EXAMPLES
       Get some information about the volume /dev/hda1.

              ntfscluster /dev/hda1

       Look for files in the first 500 clusters of /dev/hda1.

              ntfscluster -c 0-500 /dev/hda1


BUGS
       The info mode isn't implemented yet.  This program  is  quite  limited,
       but  it  has  no  known bugs.  If you find one, please send an email to
       <linux-ntfs-devATlists.net>
