       ntfs-3g.probe - Probe an NTFS volume mountability

       ntfs-3g.probe <--readonly|--readwrite> volume

       The  ntfs-3g.probe  utility tests a volume if it's NTFS mountable read-
       only or read-write, and exits with a  status  value  accordingly.   The
       volume can be a block device or image file.

       Below is a summary of the options that ntfs-3g.probe accepts.

       -r, --readonly
	      Test if the volume can be mounted read-only.

       -w, --readwrite
	      Test if the volume can be mounted read-write.

       -h, --help
	      Display help and exit.

       Test if /dev/sda1 can be mounted read-write:

	      ntfs-3g.probe --readwrite /dev/sda1

       The exit codes are as follows:

       0      Volume is mountable.

       11     Syntax error, command line parsing failed.

       12     The volume doesn't have a valid NTFS.

       13     Inconsistent  NTFS,  hardware or device driver fault, or unsetup
	      SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.

       14     The NTFS partition is hibernated.

       15     The volume was not cleanly unmounted.

       16     The volume is already exclusively opened and in use by a	kernel
	      driver or software.

       17     Unsetup SoftRAID/FakeRAID hardware.

       18     Unknown reason.

       19     Not enough privilege to mount.
