I have had an opportunity to use this once. Basically wanted to do a
ghost backup in DOS, but wanted to read the NTFS partition from DOS
before the backup. For my little requirements, it worked fine.
Certainly an NTFS partition would be big enough. There is a version
with read/write capability. However, you would have to format the drive
with some other program, partition magic or the like.
