This command is normally executed by .Xr mount 8 at boot time, but can be used by any user to mount an NTFS file system on any directory that they own (provided, of course, that they have appropriate access to the device that contains the file system). .Pp The options are as follows: .Bl -tag -width indent .It Fl s Mount the volume using case sensitive semantics. This means that you can create files that have names that only differ in case such as for example "foo" and "Foo". Without this option the volume is mounted using case insensitive semantics in which case if you create a file with name "foo" you then cannot create a file named "Foo" or rather if you do create a file named "Foo" it would overwrite the existing file "foo". .It Fl o Options are specified with a .Fl o flag followed by a comma separated string of options. See the .Xr mount 8 man page for possible options and their meanings. .El .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr mount 2 , .Xr unmount 2 , .Xr fstab 5 , .Xr mount 8 .Sh HISTORY This NTFS implementation first appeared in Mac OS X 10.5. .Sh AUTHORS This NTFS implementation was written by .An Anton Altaparmakov Aq firstname.lastname@example.org .
