Publisher's Description:

Avira NTFS4DOS Personal - Avira NTFS4DOS Personal offers read and write access from DOS to NTFS drives and thus enables a large number of DOS programs to access NTFS-formatted drives. Due to the low installation size, Avira NTFS4DOS Personal can be ideally saved on a USB stick or a boot diskette. Thanks to the unique technology developed by Avira, it is possible to access NTFS drives from Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 with one single boot diskette – completely independently of its service pack status.

Reliable access to NTFS drives

• Full read and write access to NTFS drives

• Fast creation of universal boot media

• Simple integration of NTFS drives under DOS

It did not work. 2 different systems booted to menu, but when anything was selected it locked the machine with a memory stack error message.

This was a blessing, I tried a lot to revive the windows XP to boot normally and to restore data from another PC, but in vain the windows would restart. NTFS4DOS boot made it possible to run CHKDSK and rectify the problem and restore back WinXP to boot normally.Thanks . I have request my boss for an official copy.

I downloaded the product and created a boot disk to deploy it on an NTFS volume that would not boot and the NTFS4DOS shell did not work. It could see FAT32 volumes but was not keen to process them.

It could run a chkdsk on the NTFS volume, but if I tried to do a "dir" directory command on any NTFS volume, it produced a three way choice error message as though the volume had not been formatted, or had the wrong filing system loaded.

If I tried to run a "C:" command within the NTFS4DOS shell, that command also failed in the same way.

When I booted from the disk containing "sys" files prepared using the boot disk provided by the program as installed on another windows XP PC, the NTFS4DOS program complained that it could not "use UMB" (sic).
Could this be a reason it was not working?

Running out of a Win98 EBD I didn't get the UMB error message.

Do you need the hardware spec for the PC I am trying to fix? Its a HP with a 500 mhz-ish Celeron with 500-MB or so of memory. And I'm using an ordinary PATA ATAPI disk of about 76 GB dimension - brand name available if you need it.

Meantime, I have given up on NTFS fot now, and am trying to install Windows XP using FAT32, but it's nothing like such a good filing system.

Any suggestions please ?
Best regards John Yate.

Really useful product - use this instead of the MSDOS boot disc in Windows x

When I switched to the NTFS drive and executed a DIR command, it locked up with a Divide by zero error after displaying the directory listing... twice. I had to reboot both times. Kinda makes it useless if I can't see what I'm doing.

Did what I needed it to do. Didn't solve my problem though.

I downloaded the latest version 1.9 I think, and was suprised to discover that this original file could not be run under MS DOS. Not to worry, I have a Vista laptop so I started it up Part-I and when it came to trying to build a floppy disk on A: drive that I don't have on the laptop, I thought the program would allow me access to my other drives!?? No such luck. The program did build the NTFS4DOS.exe file along with a couple of CHKDISK(g) EXE'S. I offloaded these file to my zip disk, and headed for my Win XP-SPIII desktop, which I could not boot because of a corrupt NTOSKRNL.exe file.

I ran the NTFS4DOS.exe and it found all of my NTFS partitions, YEA. . ., I thought. Next I attempted to replace the corrupted file as follows: copy d:ntoskrnl.exe to my newly discovered NTFS OS drive and my entire MS DOS system hung!?!? I had to reboot and restart the process again. This time I attempted to run a CHKDSKG.exe from your product and it verified all of the NTFS partitions except one. Since the Chkdsk.exe had no option to get me back to my A: prompt, I agin had to reboot my system along with the other above mentioned steps. This gave me pause to the products true functionality, and I wonder what has to be done in order to get these problems solved.

Any help with this issue would greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance . . .

The product did allow me to access my NTFS drive from DOS however I found it very cumbersome to copy files. For example, once I was in a folder and I issued a 'COPY *.* A:' to copy all the files from that folder to drive A:, it would only copy the first file. I had to copy each file individually. I found a utility called NTFS Reader which was better suited to my needs.

Great Tool

Works as advertised. Used both the chkdskg and the file browser to do my repairs. The chkdskg worked properly even though chkdsk from XP Recover mode would not.

Needed to create a boot CD for my Vista laptop, and this product wasn't suitable.

Writing to NTFS disk

I had tried this program from DOS and I have to say that writing to NTFS partition doesn't work. For example: - I get a message from Borland Turbo Pascal that it couldn't create a file, when I try to save my file (program). Otherwise reading from NTFS partition seems to work correctly.

NTFS and Utilities

I had a HD that Windows wouldn't see. Linux would see it and it's files but could do anything with it. I needed to run chkdsk but when I used the Windows boot disk to do this it wouldn't recognize the drive without the drivers. When the drivers were loaded the computer would reboot. I needed to run a DOS NTFS capable. NTFS4DOS fit the bill and I was able to recover all the data on this drive, which was my main "data" drive with My Documents on it. Thank you very much I have saved this for any future use. It will definitely be in my tool box. I am not a computer professional merely a home computer geek.

I am satisfied because I could eradicate a virus in deleting the malicious file (rootkit).

Dir Sirs, the programm did not recognize the ntfs partition on my ubs stick which sits on a pcmcia card on my notebook. The ubs stick works fine with my desktop computer. Another ubs stick with fat32 formatet is recognized and works on the notebook. With another dos ntfs programm can i read the failed stick. A third programm tells me that the MFT ( master file table) is defekt.
That is my experience.
I thank for dowloading your programm.
Your sincerely : Heinrich Suter

Exellent tool.

Good platform for troubleshooting the ntfs systems. More utilities may please be added, like to run restore the system.

Good stuff!

I downloaded this so that I could use a DOS virus scanner on NTFS volumes. It creates a bootable 1.44 MB floppy diskette that also includes a DOS HDD defragment utility that works with NTFS and FAT32 volumes and doesn't mangle LFNs! Super!

Windows Guru

I keep all my HD's in FAT-32 mode, so I can access them via a simple DOS boot disk, but for my customers who almost all have NTFS drives, my only hope is NTFS4DOS.

It's a life saver for any working tech. I wouldn't leave home without it!
It's worth its weight in GOLD, but didn't even cost me a penny. Thanks to the guys at Avira!

I've put it on a floppy disk, formatted in MSDOS and added a few extra programs to make it even more usefull. God, I love this program!!!

My test

This is a useful program for dos users but crash when I do a "dir" statement such as "c:> dir" and C is an USB hard disk or partition with high capacity. I dont know if the problem is the hard disk capacity or the USB. The message on the screen refers to a memory problem, I think, and is independent from the memory configuration I set (even with a coventional memory of > 600 K).

NTFS4DOS does what it says

How do you find a stealth virus? If you have to load Windows to run your virus checker, you can’t be sure if you are seeing what is actually there. And since Windows sprays installed programs all over the computer, you can’t usually run the virus checker from a separate boot CD. Try to find a simple standalone scanner that runs under Windows without installation. I couldn’t. This leaves – of all things – DOS, the only OS any such scanner will run on.

It’s not too hard to make a DOS-bootable CD so the lack of a floppy drive isn’t insurmountable. The inability of DOS to cope with NTFS drives is a bigger problem. I looked at various programs that claimed to solve this but they all had limitations. Only NTFS4DOS did what I wanted, and did it perfectly. With it I was able to navigate the drive without problem and read and write anything I wanted. It was completely stable and there were no problems at all, as easy as negotiating a FAT drive. I booted DOS from the CD, ran NTFS4DOS to access the hard drive, then ran F-Prot to scan all the folders on the drive. And yes, I found some viruses that didn’t show up in Windows. Everything worked perfectly.

This is a very good product that does exactly what it says. My only niggling criticism would be the irritating start-up screen that s-l-o-w-l-y asks for constant reassurance that I really am not using it for commercial purposes, but I suppose that is not a huge price to pay for what the program does.

I had a problem

Whenever I used /dir command, with any handle, it would list my files then the computer would freeze. (This is in DOS from a windows ME boot disk)

If this is an un-addressed problem, that would be wonderful to have it fixed. I did delete a virus only after knowing the EXACT path of it without using /dir.

Life Saver

I had 2 virus files (byxyabc.dll & nnnnl.dll) which Zone Alarm could not remove (even when set to delete on reboot). I knew i needed access to the hard drive without booting into windows. Even in diagnostic mode windows still had hold of these 2 files. I simply booted from an old Win98 boot floppy then ran NTFS4DOS, went to windows/system32 and deleted the files. more virus after rebooting :) Thx Heaps
