ntfs-3g filesystem in userspace (FUSE) library

The ntfs-3g driver is an open source, GPL licensed, third generation Linux NTFS driver which was implemented by the Linux-NTFS project. It provides full read-write access to NTFS, excluding access to encrypted files, writing compressed files, changing file ownership, access right.

Technically it's based on and a major improvement to the third generation Linux NTFS driver, ntfsmount. The improvements includes functionality, quality and performance enhancements.

ntfs-3g is based on FUSE (userspace filesystem framework for Linux), thus you will have to prepare fuse kernel module to be able to use it.

Fuse is available in any recent kernel. No need to prepare a kernel module if you are already running Debian Etch kernel or newer.

This package contains the shared library.

Package version:1:2010.3.6-1



The NTFS-3G driver is an open source, freely available read/write NTFS driver 
for Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, NetBSD, OpenSolaris, QNX and Haiku. It provides 
safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000, 
Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 file systems. 

The purpose of the project is to develop, quality assurance and support


ntfs-3g for Debian

Quickstart guide for ntfs-3g

I assume NTFS partition is '/dev/hda1' and its mountpoint '/mnt/windows'.

1. Load fuse kernel module and add them to /etc/modules :
   modprobe fuse && echo "fuse" >> /etc/modules

   Please notice that with recent kernel (Etch and above), you can skip this
   step, everything will be done automatica


ntfs-3g (1:1.913-2) unstable; urgency=HIGH
  * User from group fuse cannot mount ntfs-3g anymore.
    This feature could allow any user from this group to read from and write
    to arbitrary block devices, possibly involving a file descriptor leak.
    See Debian bug #445315 or CVE-2007-5159 for more information.
