ntfscmp


SYNOPSIS
       ntfscmp [OPTIONS] DEVICE1 DEVICE2

DESCRIPTION
       The  ntfscmp  program  makes  a comparison between two NTFS filesystems
       from all aspects and reports all variances it finds.   The  filesystems
       can be on block devices or images files. Ntfscmp can be used for volume
       verification however its primary purpose was to be an efficient  devel-
       opment tool, used to quickly locate, identify and check the correctness
       of the metadata changes made to NTFS.

       If one is interested only in the NTFS metadata changes then it could be
       useful  to  compare the metadata images created by using the --metadata
       option of ntfsclone(8) to eliminate the usually uninteresting timestamp
       changes.

       The  terse output of ntfscmp is intentional because the provided infor-
       mation is enough in each case to determine the exact differences.  This
       can  be  achieved, for instance, if one compares the verbose outputs of
       ntfsinfo(8) for each reported inodes by the diff(1) utility.
