I made some test using bonnie and pts, this driver seems to be much faster than ntfs-3g

(disregard the read tests, since they were done from page cache)

edit: compilebench in pts, now includes native ext4, the paragon ntfs3 driver performance is comparable

Well, 5.15 update is rolled out. Mainline users can uninstall the package now. But I will continue to update it to provide a backport for LTS users.
For those who wants the bleeding edge updates, even on 5.15+ (for testing or whatever reason), there is git package version.

@theriddick, I still think there are some issues with your system, not the driver.
Anyway, all the kernel discussion made through mailing lists. Here is ntfs3 archive:, you can respond there or email directly to

Getting some MAJOR integrity issues with this driver and my NTFS SSD's and NVMe drives. Is there a place I can bug report? I'm needing to freq jump into windows10 to fix my drives.. something is very wrong!

Btw 5.15 kernel was released recently. So soon all mainline kernel users will not need this package anymore

You bet I'm frequently checking the repos to see 5.15 land on Arch. I am assuming/hoping that the vanilla arch config will have this and ksmbd enabled.

@Hanabishi yeah I dunno; but I ran 'lsmod | grep ntfs3' to see if it was loaded and it wasn't. But I seem to have figured it out in the end anyway.

@theriddick, this is strange, by default fs drivers does not require to be loaded manually. Driver loads on mount automatically, you don't need to include it on boot or run modprobe. You sure have some exotic system/kernel configuration.

@Hanabishi I fixed the issue and explained how and why it wasn't working. Just ignore me.

ntfs3 module was just not auto loading, it installed fine, but wasn't added into module load on boot.

@theriddick, maybe provide some details. I doubt that someone has oracle abilities here.

Btw 5.15 kernel was released recently. So soon all mainline kernel users will not need this package anymore.

Module installs but does not load! Just requires me to add the module ntfs3 to load on boot manually by editing mkinitcpio.conf I think.
