@Mrodfr

In its current state, it provides read/write mounting of NTFS partitions (with some limitations - see the blog (relevant extracts quoted below) for further details. Filesysbox provides a framework for future porting of other FUSE-supported filesystems also.

Filesysbox:

"A FUSE compatible filesystem layer.
It manages locks, notifications, file handles, packets, update timeouts and more, freeing the filesystem of these jobs."

NTFS3G:

"NTFS3G-MorphOS - NTFS-3G filesystem driver for MorphOS

Features

o Read and write support.

o Supports large partitions.

o Supports large files. [but not tested and support is missing in filesysbox.library for now, so not available yet.]

o Notification, mount/unmount, soft/hard links.


Known issues
======================================================

o Case sensitive. The highlevel FUSE API version
of NTFS-3G does not support ignore_case option,
but maybe there could be ways to do it later.

This means some MorphOS applications will fail
as they try to load files with different case
compared to what is on disk.

o It seems NTFS3G does not use real journalling.
In case of power failure/crash volume may become
corrupted. There is no repair program available,
except on Windows, afaik.

o Not full removable support. One should unmount
filesystem before removing disk. Might be fixed.

o Protection bits will always be RWED for all files.

o No file comments."
