.TH NTFSCMP 8 "April 2006" "ntfsprogs @VERSION@"
ntfscmp \- compare two NTFS filesystems and tell the differences
program makes a comparison between two NTFS filesystems from all aspects and
reports all varianses it finds.
The filesystems can be on block devices or images files. Ntfscmp can be used
for volume verification however its primarily purpose was to be an efficient
development 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
.BR ntfsclone (8)
to eliminate the usually uninteresting timestamp changes.
The terse output of
is intentional because the provided information is enough in each case
to determine the exact differences. This can be achieved, for instance,
if one compares the verbose outputs of
.BR ntfsinfo (8)
for each reported inodes by the
.BR diff (1)
