Thanks. Last time when I used NTFS on FreeBSD it was only for reading. I
tested it now on an older CURRENT and it's fine. So I will use gpart(8)
to restructure the disk as:
da0p1 freebsd-boot (512k)
da0p2 freebsd-ufs (100G)
da0p3 freebsd-swap (10G)
da0p4 NTFS (1300G)
And format the later with Windows tools to NTFS.
