1. copy filesysbox.library to LIBS
2. copy the NTFS-3g and exFAT handlers to L
3. "edit L:automount-config and change ntfs-handler to ntfs3g-handler"
4. reboot your AROS system
(step 3 had been kindly suggested by Neil Cafferkey)
This will unfortunately work for internal drives only. Mounting a NTFS formatted USB drive will require some further effort, which basically consists in creating a new text file in DEVS:DOSDrivers and call it, for instance, NTFS0. This file will include these lines
FileSystem = ntfs3g-handler
DosType = 0x4e544653
Device = usbscsi.device
Unit = 0
BlockSize = 512
Surfaces = 1
BlocksPerTrack = 1
LowCyl = 0
HighCyl = 976773166
Reserved = 0
/* Control = ro */
Activate = 1
Then, a "mount NTFS0:" command given from the shell should complete the effort.
As Fredrik pointed out, "this is for a 500GB MBR-less USB harddrive formatted as NTFS. When LowCyl is 0 HighCyl is ignored and the entire disk size as reported by TD_GETGEOMETRY is used instead. Control can be specified with ro for a read-only mount". This NTFS0 DOSDriver will be included into next Icaros Desktop as well, along with all other necessary files. You may also change the Device option - for instance using diskimage.device - to specify another location to seek for NTFS partitions. In the screen below, you should see my Icaros test virtual machine successfully reading the two NTFS partitions from a Windows 10 system disk: it has been attached to this VM in order to test it and I could read, write and compare files without issues, at fairly more than decent speeds.
