Could you imagine to use "FAT" instead of "NTFS", or do you
intendedly require features that are specific to "NTFS"?
I found that "FAT" - in FreeBSD: msdosfs - is sufficient
for transfer tasks. It doesn't require fuse, you have r/w
by kernel means (refer to "man mount_msdosfs"). Of course,
this would require new initialising of the disk.
