This is because OneDrive Files On-Demand feature uses NTFS reparse points to link files and folders that are stored in OneDrive to the local filesystem, thus making the file or folder unusable with any previous version of Windows, with any other NTFS file system driver, or any file system and backup utilities not updated to support it. ==Implementations== FreeBSD 3.2 released in May 1999 included read-only NTFS support written by Semen Ustimenko.


v5.0 in Windows 2000) is based on the operating system version; it should not be confused with the NTFS version number (v3.1 since Windows XP). Although subsequent versions of Windows added new file system-related features, they did not change NTFS itself.

A Windows command-line utility called convert.exe can convert supporting file systems to NTFS, including HPFS (only on Windows NT 3.1, 3.5, and 3.51), FAT16 and FAT32 (on Windows 2000 and later). As of Windows 10 version 1709, known as the Fall Creators Update, Microsoft requires the OneDrive file structure to reside on an NTFS disk.

This implementation was ported to NetBSD by Christos Zoulas and Jaromir Dolecek and released with NetBSD 1.5 in December 2000.


It was built as a Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE) program and released under the GPL but work on Captive NTFS ceased in 2006. NTFS-3G is a free GPL-licensed FUSE implementation of NTFS that was initially developed as a Linux kernel driver by Szabolcs Szakacsits.


The FreeBSD implementation of NTFS was also ported to OpenBSD by Julien Bordet and offers native read-only NTFS support by default on i386 and amd64 platforms as of version 4.9 released 1 May 2011. Linux kernel versions 2.2.0 and later include the ability to read NTFS partitions; kernel versions 2.6.0 and later contain a driver written by Anton Altaparmakov (University of Cambridge) and Richard Russon which supports file read, overwrite and resize.


With Windows 10 version 1709 and Windows Server 2019, the maximum implemented file size is 8PB minus 2MB or 9,007,199,252,643,840 bytes. === Journaling === NTFS is a journaling file system and uses the NTFS Log ($LogFile) to record metadata changes to the volume.
