NAME

       ntfscmp - compare two NTFS filesystems and tell the differences

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
       development  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
       information 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.
