ntfsls [options] device

       ntfsls  [  -a  |  --all  ]  [ -F | --classify ] [ -f | --force ] [ -h |
       --help ] [ -i | --inode ] [ -l | --long ] [ -p | --path PATH ] [  -q  |
       --quiet  ] [ -s | --system ] [ -V | --version ] [ -v | --verbose ] [ -x
       | --dos ] device

       ntfsls is used to list information about the  files  specified  by  the
       PATH  option  (the  root  directory by default).  DEVICE is the special
       file corresponding to the device (e.g /dev/hdXX) or an NTFS image file.

       Below is a summary of all the options that ntfsls 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, --all
              Display  all  files.  If this option is not specified file names
              in the POSIX namespace will not be displayed.

       -F, --classify
              Append indicator (one of */=@|) to entries.

       -f, --force
              Force execution.  For example necessary to run on an NTFS parti-
              tion stored in a normal file.

       -h, --help
              Print the usage information of ntfsls and exit.

       -i, --inode
              Print inode number of each file.  This is the MFT reference num-
              ber in NTFS terminology.

       -l, --long
              Use a long listing format.

       -p, --path PATH
              The directory whose contents to list or the file (including  the
              path) about which to display information.

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

       -R, --recursive
              Show  the  contents  of  all  directories  beneath the specified

              Display short file names,  i.e.  files  in  the  DOS  namespace,
              instead of long file names, i.e. files in the WIN32 namespace.
