Hi all :whistling: ,

About:
Captive provides full read/write access to NTFS disk drives in the WINE way by using the original Microsoft Windows ntfs.sys driver. It emulates the required subsystems of the Microsoft Windows kernel by reusing one of the original ntoskrnl.exe, ReactOS parts, or this project's own reimplementations on a case by case basis. Involvement of the original driver files was chosen to achieve the best and unprecedented filesystem compatibility and safety.

BIG Thanks! ;)

What is Found There: "You may like to use whole bootable CD standalone distribution featuring Captive like: Trinity Rescue Kit"

Trinity Rescue Kit:

What is Trinity Rescue Kit ? ;)

Trinity Rescue Kit or TRK is a free live Linux distribution that aims specifically at recovery and repair operations on Windows machines, but is equally usable for Linux recovery issues.
It is possible to boot TRK in three different ways:
-as a bootable CD which you can burn yourself from a downloadable isofile
-from a USB stick/disk (optionally also a fixed disk), installable from Windows or from the bootable TRK cd
-from network over PXE, which requires some modifications on your local network (version 3.2). Version 3.3 has the ability to act as a network bootserver itself, without any modifications to your local network.
TRK is a complete commandline based distribution, apart from a few tools like qtparted, links, partition image and midnight commander

Here 's a sumup of some of the most important features, new and old:
-easily reset windows passwords (backup and restore option in 3.3)
-4 different virusscan products integrated in a single uniform commandline with online update capability (5 in version 3.3)
-full ntfs write support thanks to ntfs-3g (all other drivers included as well)
-clone NTFS filesystems over the network
-wide range of hardware support (kernel 2.6.19.2 and recent kudzu hwdata)
-easy script to find all local filesystems
-self update capability to include and update all virusscanners
-full proxyserver support.
-run a samba fileserver (windows like filesharing)
-run a ssh server
-recovery and undeletion of files with utilities and procedures
-recovery of lost partitions
-evacuation of dying disks
-UTF-8 international character support.
-powerful multicast disk cloning utility for any filesystem
-2 rootkit detection uitilities (version 3.3).
-elaborated documentation (+manpages as of 3.3).
-elaborated documentation
.....

Hi Mikorist :whistling: ,

Even Bigger thanks to you for the info provided this Trinity Rescue kit looks very useful, twill repair Linux & Windows systems you say? The only problem I can forsee is that it uses commandline programs in the majority of cases & unless you are familair with the software i.e. what switches etc that you would use for the various utils I would probably come unstuck?

I'm not sure if I have missed it somewhere but is there a manual on how to use it please?

Regards & Best Wishes,

ispy ;)

P.S. I have obtained some info "Install Linux in Windows XP with QtEmu" was wondering if the tutorial would be any use to Windows users that want to try out Linux, let me know? ;)

Captive provides full read/write access to NTFS disk drives in the WINE way by using the original Microsoft Windows ntfs.sys driver.

Well.. doesn't NTFS-3G already provides safe NTFS support without even the need to resort on MS files? :whistling:

Ubuntu supports well the mount of NTFS partitions on external drives, except that sometimes you do need to mount manually the partition with the "force" option whenever the drive was not unmounted in a clean manner.

http://www.ntfs-3g.org/

Captive is no longer maintained by the developer: http://www.jankratoc...roject/captive/

But it does bring the advantage of native support for encrypted and compressed files inside this file system: http://en.wikipedia....ki/Captive_NTFS
