Thank You! Looks better now, but the volume is still unusable.

# mount_ntfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt/
root at Ott / # mount -v|grep da0
/dev/da0s1 on /mnt (ntfs, local, fsid 7100000008000000)

# df -H|grep da0
/dev/da0s1       160G     26G    134G    16%    /mnt

...but all commands result with an error like this...

# ls -l /mnt/BACKUP
ls: /mnt/BACKUP: Argument list too long
