NTFS is one of the 'crown jewels' at Microsoft, who consider the idea
of sharing ideas despicable. The only way to get information about it
is to reverse-engineer the format, which is such a bugger that not
many people are interested enough in doing. Ntfsprogs is the only tool
(AFAIK) that can do that.
