Based on industry proven Paragon Universal File System Drivers technology, NTFS for Linux provides full read/write access to NTFS volumes under Linux. The driver allows mounting NTFS partitions, so that programs can work transparently with these mounted partitions - browse contents, open documents, run applications, work with existing files and create new ones. The NTFS for Linux driver is a commercial Linux kernel driver for local access to NTFS volumes. Kernel driver means you will have rapid and transparent access like to native file systems. Just mount manually or insert into fstab, and NTFS will be available like any other tree directory.
We offer shorten development cycles and broad customization options. As holders of the technology, we have the maximum know-how to meet your needs, e.g. port the source code to other platforms, build additional utilities required for your solution, and many more (for more information, check Solution Approach document).
In addition, we offer Universal File System Driver Software Development Kit (UFSD SDK) that provides documentation, tools, and sample code to help you access unsupported file systems from 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.
Paragon 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 7, 8, 8.1, 10, 2008 Server, 2012 Server, 2016 Server)). 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 Ext3 & Ext4 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.
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 on).
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.
Leveraging Paragon UFSD technology for the built-in SD card reader and USB 3.0 port, Western Digital customers can attach their NTFS (Windows), HFS+ (Mac) and now exFAT for SDXC cards and other exFAT-formatted storage devices to WD’s Linux-based products and have rapid, transparent and full read/write access to these non-native file systems.
Paragon UFSD for Linux expand file sharing and storage capabilities for entire line of network products, beginning with the home user-focused ATHENA-R2 High Power AC2600 Wi-Fi Router with Advanced MU-MIMO (Multi-User MIMO).
