+=====
+NTFS3
+=====
+
+
+Summary and Features
+====================
+
+NTFS3 is fully functional NTFS Read-Write driver. The driver works with
+NTFS versions up to 3.1, normal/compressed/sparse files
+and journal replaying. File system type to use on mount is 'ntfs3'.
+
+- This driver implements NTFS read/write support for normal, sparse and
+  compressed files.
+- Supports native journal replaying;
+- Supports extended attributes
+	Predefined extended attributes:
+	- 'system.ntfs_security' gets/sets security
+			descriptor (SECURITY_DESCRIPTOR_RELATIVE)
+	- 'system.ntfs_attrib' gets/sets ntfs file/dir attributes.
+		Note: applied to empty files, this allows to switch type between
+		sparse(0x200), compressed(0x800) and normal;
+- Supports NFS export of mounted NTFS volumes.
+
+Mount Options
+=============
+
+The list below describes mount options supported by NTFS3 driver in addition to
+generic ones.
+
+===============================================================================
+
+nls=name		This option informs the driver how to interpret path
+			strings and translate them to Unicode and back. If
+			this option is not set, the default codepage will be
+			used (CONFIG_NLS_DEFAULT).
+			Examples:
+				'nls=utf8'
+
+uid=
+gid=
+umask=			Controls the default permissions for files/directories created
+			after the NTFS volume is mounted.
+
+fmask=
+dmask=			Instead of specifying umask which applies both to
+			files and directories, fmask applies only to files and
+			dmask only to directories.
+
+nohidden		Files with the Windows-specific HIDDEN (FILE_ATTRIBUTE_HIDDEN)
+			attribute will not be shown under Linux.
+
+sys_immutable		Files with the Windows-specific SYSTEM
+			(FILE_ATTRIBUTE_SYSTEM) attribute will be marked as system
+			immutable files.
+
+discard			Enable support of the TRIM command for improved performance
+			on delete operations, which is recommended for use with the
+			solid-state drives (SSD).
+
+force			Forces the driver to mount partitions even if 'dirty' flag
+			(volume dirty) is set. Not recommended for use.
+
+sparse			Create new files as "sparse".
+
+showmeta		Use this parameter to show all meta-files (System Files) on
+			a mounted NTFS partition.
+			By default, all meta-files are hidden.
+
+prealloc		Preallocate space for files excessively when file size is
+			increasing on writes. Decreases fragmentation in case of
+			parallel write operations to different files.
+
+no_acs_rules		"No access rules" mount option sets access rights for
+			files/folders to 777 and owner/group to root. This mount
+			option absorbs all other permissions:
+			- permissions change for files/folders will be reported
+				as successful, but they will remain 777;
+			- owner/group change will be reported as successful, but
+				they will stay as root
+
+acl			Support POSIX ACLs (Access Control Lists). Effective if
+			supported by Kernel. Not to be confused with NTFS ACLs.
+			The option specified as acl enables support for POSIX ACLs.
+
+noatime			All files and directories will not update their last access
+			time attribute if a partition is mounted with this parameter.
+			This option can speed up file system operation.
+
+===============================================================================
+
+ToDo list
+=========
+
+- Full journaling support (currently journal replaying is supported) over JBD.
