       ntfscat - print NTFS files and streams on the standard output

       [options] device [file]

       ntfscat  will read a file or stream from an NTFS volume and display the
       contents on the standard output.

       The case of the filename passed to ntfscat is ignored.

       Below is a summary of all the options that ntfscat 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.

       -a, --attribute TYPE
              Display  the  contents  of  a  particular  attribute  type.   By
              default,  the  unnamed  $DATA  attribute  will  be  shown.   The
              attribute  can  be specified by a number in decimal or hexadeci-
              mal, or by name.

              |Hex     Decimal   Name                     |
              |0x10    16        "$STANDARD_INFORMATION"  |
              |0x20    32        "$ATTRIBUTE_LIST"        |
              |0x30    48        "$FILE_NAME"             |
              |0x40    64        "$OBJECT_ID"             |
              |0x50    80        "$SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR"   |
              |0x60    96        "$VOLUME_NAME"           |
              |0x70    112       "$VOLUME_INFORMATION"    |
              |0x80    128       "$DATA"                  |
              |0x90    144       "$INDEX_ROOT"            |
              |0xA0    160       "$INDEX_ALLOCATION"      |
              |0xB0    176       "$BITMAP"                |
              |0xC0    192       "$REPARSE_POINT"         |
              |0xD0    208       "$EA_INFORMATION"        |
              |0xE0    224       "$EA"                    |
              |0xF0    240       "$PROPERTY_SET"          |
              |0x100   256       "$LOGGED_UTILITY_STREAM" |

              Notes The attribute names may be given  without  the  leading  $
              If  you use the $ symbol, you must quote the name to prevent the
              shell interpreting the name.

       -n, --attribute-name NAME
              Display this named attribute, stream.

       -i, --inode NUM
              Specify a file by its inode number instead of its name.

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

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

       -q, --quiet
              Suppress some debug/warning/error messages.

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

       -v, --verbose
              Display more debug/warning/error messages.

       Display the contents of a file in the root of an NTFS volume.

              ntfscat /dev/hda1 boot.ini

       Display the contents of a file in a subdirectory of an NTFS volume.

              ntfscat /dev/hda1 /winnt/system32/drivers/etc/hosts

       Display the contents of the $INDEX_ROOT attribute of the root directory
       (inode 5).

              ntfscat /dev/hda1 -a INDEX_ROOT -i 5 | hexdump -C
