CONFIG_NTFS_FS: NTFS file system support

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_NTFS_FS has multiple definitions:

NTFS file system support found in fs/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_NTFS_FS:

Help text

NTFS is the file system of Microsoft Windows NT, 2000, XP and 2003.

Saying Y or M here enables read support. There is partial, but safe, write support available. For write support you must also say Y to "NTFS write support" below.

There are also a number of user-space tools available, called ntfsprogs. These include ntfsundelete and ntfsresize, that work without NTFS support enabled in the kernel.

This is a rewrite from scratch of Linux NTFS support and replaced the old NTFS code starting with Linux 2.5.11. A backport to the Linux 2.4 kernel series is separately available as a patch from the project web site.

For more information see Documentation/filesystems/ntfs.txt and http://www.linux-ntfs.org/.

To compile this file system support as a module, choose M here: the module will be called ntfs.

If you are not using Windows NT, 2000, XP or 2003 in addition to Linux on your computer it is safe to say N.
