Quoting Kevin Hooke (kevin@kevinhooke.com):

Rather likely -- and not SMP-safe, either.  You can certainly use it in
emergencies, e.g., to deal with lost administrator passwords.  If you
find yourself needing it, carefully check the volume afterwards.

> Anyone know when write support will be available?

As you may know, code was present for write support (but usually
disabled) in the first NTFS driver, the one that wasn't SMP-safe.
The replacement NTFS driver so far lacks write code entirely.
