About NTFS Tools and Library ntfsprogs Download

NTFS file system one can make use of it from ARM-Linux using below two methods one is install and down load user space modules and other approach is install and download kernel space drivers.

ntfsmount is part of ntfsprogs package. It relies on libntfs, thus it has more features than kernel driver.
ntfsmount supports file overwrite with changes to file size, has limited file and directory creation/deletion support, can operate with named data streams and supports special Interix files (symlinks, block and character devices, FIFOs and sockets).

Requires FUSE- Filesystem in userspace
