I think you may have a tough time finding that. Supposedly, NTFS is a c1
(supposedly soon to be c2) secure file system, which means that no OS
except for NT is supposed to be able to read/write from it. I heard that
MS is considering legal action against the guy who wrote the NTFS-read
stuff for linux, since the code was copywrite or some such.

I personally think the only way a micro$oft operating/file system will be
secure is to turn the computer off. In my opinon, this doesn't change
the amount of usefullness versus when the machine is turned on.
