How to Add a NTFS Drive to FreeNAS

FreeNAS is a Unix operating system based on FreeBSD. It's designed to manage hard drives and provide them as network attached storage (NAS). The system is small and requires a small amount of memory since it's geared towards a single purpose. FreeNAS supports a variety of different file systems in the hard drives it manages, including UFS, UFS-EFI, UFS-GPT, FAT32, NTFS, gmirror, graid5 and gvlnum. The default file system used by FreeNAS is UFS, but it can add preformatted drives in any of the supported file systems.
