Possible replacement of NTFS driver
|Reported by:||pulkomandy||Owned by:||waddlesplash|
Our current NTFS driver is a kernel side port of NTFS-3G (Linux driver running in userland). It has some problems.
We have discussed replacing it with other implenentations. Just creating this ticket to keep track of the ideas and discussions in a single place.
One alternative is using Apple's NTFS driver: https://opensource.apple.com/source/ntfs/ (published under APPLE PUBLIC SOURCE LICENSE)
More recently, a new driver has been published by Paragon software under GPLv2 and with plans to introduce it in Linux: https://www.paragon-software.com/us/home/ntfs3-driver-faq/
