The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation Linux NTFS driver. It provides full read-write access to NTFS, excluding access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing file ownership, access right. Technically it=E2=80=99s based on and a major improvement to the third generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements include functionality, quality and performance enhancements. ntfs-3g features are being merged to ntfsmount. In the meanwhile, ntfs-3g is currently the only free, as in either speech or beer, NTFS driver for Linux that supports unlimited file creation and deletion.
