    Question Write to NTFS

    Hi

    Maby it is the wrong plase to post it - but i dont know wher else to do it.

    Does anyone have a small program that enables you to write to a NTFS file system from dos mode?
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.

    write to NTFS

    NTFSDOS won't do it unless you buy the pro version for an obscene amount of money. I think Christophe Grenier has a free read/write NTFS driver for Linux (and a floppy image for a linux boot disk with everything you need on it for replacing the admin password).

    BTW, changing bytes in an existing file is a LOT easier than creating new directory entries, resorting the B Trees, allocating space in the bitmap table, etc. What is it that you need to do?

    My win 2k is broke completely down! - ok I try to those repare at the instalation CD - it didn't work - so I have to make a reinstall - but then it gonna del all the files i the documents directory

    So I would like to rename my "c:\Documents and settings" derectory. (thats why i would like a Read/Write to NTFS)

    But I have thorgth of a nother solution - I think I'm gonna try to split my HD in two partisions - them I install Win on the free partision (f - then i supose that i can go from my win on f: and see wats on the "old" c: - and then get the files - and finaly del the old c: (and maby then rename my f: to c

    Does anybody knows if it's gonna work? - or have another Idea?

    use partition magic, resize and create a new partition, reinstall a new win2k or :
    boot the cd in recovery console, then you log into your crashed win2k, then the cmd line allows you to do anything you need

    Nope - You have only acces to the \winnt\ and subs directorys from the consol (so you cant rename the c:\documents and settings folder)

    But the partision think soved the thing :-)

    read from NTFS

    Well if all you want is to make backups of stuff in a directory, use NTFSDOS! You have to pay to get a version that will WRITE to it (that's the hard part) but the READ ONLY version is free. I'm sure Christophe Grenier's linux driver also lets you read, and it is free and, like I said, you can download the floppy boot disk image. He uses it for changing the Admin password.
