Package: scrounge-ntfs
Version: 0.9-6
Severity: minor


When calling scrounge-ntfs with "-h" we can see that the program name is
wrong ("scrounge" instead "scrounge-ntfs") in the usage message:

$ scrounge-ntfs -h
usage: scrounge -l disk
  List all drive partition information.

usage: scrounge -s disk
  Search drive for NTFS partitions.

usage: scrounge [-m mftoffset] [-c clustersize] [-o outdir] disk start end
  Scrounge data from a partition
  -m         Offset to mft (in sectors)
  -c         Cluster size (in sectors, default of 8)
  -o         Directory to put scrounged files in
  disk       The raw disk partitios (ie: /dev/hda)
  start      First sector of partition
  end        Last sector of partition

Also, would be good if the above help message could be displayed when
calling only "scrounge-ntfs":

$ scrounge-ntfs
scrounge-ntfs: must specify drive name

Thank you!
