I am using 5.3-RELEASE. The mount_ntfs(8) manual page states that there is limited write capability for NTFS-mounted filesystems. I am finding that there is not write capability at all.
What is the state of writing to an NTFS filesystem on FREEBSD?
I cannot write anything whatsoever.
Does NTFS writing work on any FreeBSD system?
Here is the output of 'mount -p':
/dev/ad0s1 /m/ntfs ntfs rw 0 0
And here is what happens when I try to write to an NTFS mount, e.g.:
% date > xx
xx: No such file or directory.
Reads work fine.
mount_ntfs -rw /dev/ntfs_partition /m/ntfs
[write 'anything' to /m/ntfs]... (Use cat, cp, shell redirect, whatever)
anything: No such file or directory.
Fix the kernel driver code?
Alternatively, fix the documentation.
