Why Paragon NTFS for Linux?
We offer shorten development cycles and broad customization options. As holders of the
technology, we have all the resources to develop further - port the source code to other platforms,
build additional utilities required for your solution (for more information, please see
Solution Approach in Adobe®
In addition, we have Universal File System Driver Software Development Kit (UFSD SDK) that
provides documentation, tools, and sample code to help you build support for none-supported file
systems into your application.
Working closely with our customers and partners, we have consistently demonstrated the
ability to meet our customer needs. Please see our
Case Studies on how NTFS for Linux has
been used to create more powerful solutions for our partners.
Key Features and Benefits of NTFS for Linux
Full access to NTFS volumes
|| Don't bother about the file system you're working with. NTFS for Linux driver provides
full access (read/write, format, etc.) to the NTFS volumes (NTFS ver. 1.2, 3.0 and 3.1 (Windows NT
4.0, 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista)). It also fully supports advanced NTFS features like sparse files
and alternate data streams.
||Get high performance, comparable to the native NTFS performance and in some cases even better
than Ext2 FS. The driver was implemented in a heavy working configuration, including saving video
streams in a file and displaying its content simultaneously in a real time mode.
Porting to any hardware platform
||Use any hardware platform you wish. Platform independence of the driver source code allows us
to port it easily on any hardware platform presented on the market. At the present time our driver
supports the following architectures:
- Intel x86 or compatible;
- x86_64 or compatible;
- ARM (XScale, Marvell);
Stability in heavy conditions
||Don't worry about the driver stability. We have thoroughly tested our NTFS for Linux driver in
different configurations, and we can guarantee the absence of any file or volume corruption. It is
important for data storage systems when many users access stored data simultaneously and the device
works under heavy conditions and at peak capacity.
Low system requirements
||Due to unique technology our driver has low system requirements. It requires extremely low
memory to be loaded: ~500k of RAM. For example, for our driver it's enough to have 32 MB of RAM to
work with NTFS partitions bigger than 250 Gb without slowing your system down.
Microsoft Dynamic Volumes support
||Work with full range of dynamic volumes (simple, spanned, stripped, mirrored, RAID-5). We have
implemented support of any kind of Microsoft Dynamic Volumes in the driver to allow users to get
access to information, which was formerly accessible under Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista only.
||Create your own solution using additional utilities for formatting, defragmenting, wiping,
getting and changing information about any NTFS volume, checking integrity and copying data
(including all NTFS attributes: alternate data streams, security attributes, encryption and so
