System Requirements

System Requirements

  • Processor: Intel Pentium 300 MHz and higher, or compatible
  • RAM: 16MB
  • Both 32- and 64-bit CPUs are supported
  • HDD: 10 MB
  • Due to unique technology our NTFS/HFS+ for Linux drivers have low system requirements. For example, it is enough for our driver to have 500KB of free RAM to work with NTFS partitions larger than 250 GB. NTFS & HFS+ Kernel modules occupy around 700 Kb of RAM.

  • Supported Linux kernel:
    Currently, the product supports Linux Kernels from 2.6.15 (on 2.6 Kernel branch), as well as up to 3.11.x (on 3.x Kernel branch). Due to ever changing nature of Linux, using newer Linux kernels may require changes to the product. Thus, compatibility of this release with Kernels later than 3.11.x, as well as with highly customized Kernels cannot be guaranteed. Users of customized Kernels can test Express edition of the product on their systems before buying Professional edition. To keep up with the changes in Linux Kernel, our product is also updated frequently. Thus, this web site may not contain the most up-to-date information. Please contact our support department at to get the most up-to-date list of supported Linux Kernels.
