ntfscp [options] device source_file destination

       ntfscp will copy file to an NTFS volume. destination can be either file
       or directory. In case if destination is  directory  specified  by  name
       then  source_file is copied into this directory, in case if destination
       is directory and specified by inode number then unnamed data  attribute
       is  created  for this inode and source_file is copied into it (WARNING:
       it's unusual to have unnamed data streams  in  the  directories,  think
       twice before specifying directory by inode number).

       Below  is a summary of all the options that ntfscp 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 NUM
              Write to this attribute.

       -i, --inode
              Treat destination as inode number.

       -N, --attr-name NAME
              Write to attribute with this name.

       -n, --no-action
              Use this option to make a test run before doing  the  real  copy
              operation.  Volume will be opened read-only and no write will be

       -f, --force
              This will override some sensible defaults, such as  not  working
              with 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 ntfscp.

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

       All data on NTFS is stored in streams, which can have names. A file can
       have more than one data streams, but exactly one must have no name. The
              ntfscp /dev/hda1 /home/user/new_boot.ini boot.ini

       Copy myfile to C:\some\path\myfile:stream (assume that /dev/hda1 letter
       in windows is C):

              ntfscp -N stream /dev/hda1 myfile /some/path
