<file system application> Project implements full read/write
access to NTFS disk drives. You can mount your Microsoft
Windows NT, 200x or XP partition as a transparently accessible
volume for your GNU/Linux.
As opposed to other projects this is currently the only
software supporting the full read/write access including
the possibility to create/delete files, modify directories
etc securely with no loss of data due to the use of native
windows .dll libraries.
Captive is easy as hell to install thanks to its nice clicky GUI tool
that scans the hardisk/s for NTFS partitions and also installs the
.ddl's either from a service pack or from the windows partition itself.
No stuffing around with kernel modules "with hope it doesn't screw up my
NTFS partition in write mode" because it uses "Microsoft's" own .dll's
(and a bit of Wine wizardry ). Its open source and free to enjoy and its
one of those gems in the open source community.
