Ntfsprogs is a collection of free Unix utilities for managing the NTFS filesystem used by the Windows NT operating system (since version 3.1) on a hard disk partition. 'ntfsprogs' was the first stable method of writing to NTFS partitions in Linux.
All NTFS versions are supported, used by 32-bit and 64-bit Windows. ntfsprogs remains a popular way of interacting with NTFS partitions and is included by most Linux distributions and on Live CDs. There are also versions that have been compiled for Windows.
