I will again be able to offer these NTFS tools to repair NTFS partitions. Please begin reforwarding requests from folks with trashed disks to me, and I'll be able to assist folks. Microsoft has apologized and withdrawn their statements.

We are very happy this thread ended on a happy note, instead of in court. Microsoft will take no action against us for NTFS development on Linux, which can now proceed without concern.
