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.
complained about the file not being a block-device.

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


At on time I was exchanging a lot of NTFS disks with windows users
and I had the free version of Paragon. It had features that the ntfs for
linux didn't have at that time. Don't know if this is still germain
or not.

After all is said and done, more is said than done.
