NTFS adn ReactOS?

Post by Ivanov » Thu Jan 13, 2005 5:08 pm

Hello, people!
I have tested ReactOS Live CD before some months and I didn`t have problems with access to my FAT32 HDD. Now, when I have HDD formated in NTFS file system and start Live CD of ReactOS I cannot eneter in any partition - I only can see drive letter and volume label. Why?
Please help me!
... and exuse me for very, very bad English.... :(

There is no NTFS support in ROS at the moment.
It will hopefully come in future releases, maybe 0.5

For the time being, you'll need to run it on a FAT32 filesystem.

What are the chances of using Windows NTFS driver on ReactOS (for those who have a Windows license, of course)?

i'm guessing theres some sort of oi don't copy that with ms with that

but yea, if it is gonna be able to use windows drivers, why not windows filesystem drivers?!!!

worth looking into...for testing purposes of course :o

There's probably a part of the EULA against that, although I couldn't find it in a quick read-through.

The Captive project has been around for quite a while and no one complained. It apparently uses some Wine and ReactOS (!) code and Microsoft's ntfs.sys. The latter is not distributed as part of the project, of course.

But captive also needs the original ntoskrnl.exe, doesn't it :?:

I suppose that in future people will use ntfs only to reuse existing ntfs partition.
But if they created ntfs partition earlier then they allready have ntoskrnl.exe. 8)

No. Just the original ntfs.sys

What file systems are planned?

The ability to read NTFS should suffice for most needs if there is some sort of legal barrier to using it. Its not like NTFS is perfect compared to some of the more open formats out there.

I think anyone can write a FS driver for NTs. Didn't someone do that for NT 4 and FAT32?

I don't see why people would charge $39 for a driver for such a simple file system.
