       ntfsinfo - dump a file’s attributes


       ntfsinfo [options] device


       ntfsinfo  will  dump  the  attributes of inode inode-number or the file
       path-filename and/or information about  the  mft  (  -m  option).   Run
       ntfsinfo without arguments for a full list of options.


       Below  is  a  summary of all the options that ntfsinfo 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.

       -F, --file FILE
              Show information about this file

       -f, --force
              This  will  override  some  sensible  defaults,  such   as   not
              overwriting an existing file.  Use this option with caution.

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

       -i, --inode NUM
              Show information about this inode.

       -m, --mft
              Show information about the volume.

       -q, --quiet
              Produce less output.

       -t, --notime
              Do not display timestamps in the output.

       -v, --verbose
              Increase the amount of output that ntfsinfo prints.

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