Google ntfs internal structure. 
If you are looking to write a driver or disk recovery tool, then you probably have to Google each component specifically. I don't think msdn goes further then the public facing classes, but I could be wrong. 

Ntfs is licensed, so you have to walk a fine legal line. 

The bigger pita is the Uefi bootloader and how they store it on disk.. and maybe that is why you are asking...

Looked at samba docs.  No docs about NTFS internals there.  The root struct is documented well.  Nothing else.

Thanks a lot (sarcasm), free software movement.  :)  I guess I'll just have to pay someone to do it.      From: "omalley_s at rocketmail.com" <omalley_s at rocketmail.com>

I think samba has ntfs internals but I was also thinking it was in the kernel as a fs driver. The last time I looked the 3g stuff was not documented much at all..

I cant find documentation, for NTFS on disk structures, and NTFS fault 
tolerant filesystem updates.

I could find some documentations, but they were far from complete.

NTFS-3G exists.  But that is pure source code.  The NTFS-3G 
documentation completely talks about using the driver, no internals.

Anybody know
