Attributes may work - this is the best I could find about it:

If it's on Linux, too, then those attributes won't do much.

Hi Bernhard,

Yes, I looked at the tuxera stuff last night and tried this:

setfattr -h -v 0x00000021 -n system.ntfs_attrib_be foo

This sets the read-only flag as reported by:

getfattr -h -e hex -n system.ntfs_attrib_be foo

This doesn't write-block on Linux, but my hope is it will
work on Windows. I'll test that this morning when I get
access to a straight-up Win-7 system.


Well, this didn't work when mounting the NTFS filesystem on a Win-7 system.

Greg's idea of creating an ntfs filesystem on a file didn't work either.
mkfs.ntfs
complained about the file not being a block-device.

I didn't try jdd's ISO idea yet, that's next on my list.

Regards,
Lew
