NTFSCMP(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    NTFSCMP(8)

NAME
       ntfscmp - compare two NTFS filesystems and tell the differences

SYNOPSIS
       ntfscmp [OPTIONS] DEVICE1 DEVICE2

DESCRIPTION
       The  ntfscmp  program  makes  a comparison between two NTFS filesystems
       from all	aspects	and reports all	variances it finds.   The  filesystems
       can be on block devices or images files.	Ntfscmp	can be used for	volume
       verification however its	primary	purpose	was to be an efficient	devel-
       opment tool, used to quickly locate, identify and check the correctness
       of the metadata changes made to NTFS.

       If one is interested only in the	NTFS metadata changes then it could be
       useful  to  compare the metadata	images created by using	the --metadata
       option of ntfsclone(8) to eliminate the usually uninteresting timestamp
       changes.

       The  terse output of ntfscmp is intentional because the provided	infor-
       mation is enough	in each	case to	determine the exact differences.  This
       can  be	achieved, for instance,	if one compares	the verbose outputs of
       ntfsinfo(8) for each reported inodes by the diff(1) utility.

       Below is	a summary of the options that ntfscmp accepts.

       -P, --no-progress-bar
