I want to do this:
Develop small software to read the Master File Table of the Hard Disk (EXT 3 or 4,ubuntu 11.10) and save it as a txt file in the same executable file folder. The MFT holds the metadata for the information on the hard drive. The information should include filenames, authors, file size, file address (sector, cluster) and so on.

Anyone can help? Thanks. -Dale
