** Please verify! **
I'm not at a PCBSD machine right now, but on Linux I can verify ntfs read/write ability in the kernel by checking for mkfs.ntfs with
Code:
which mkfs.ntfs
I assume this is similar with PCBSD.

You should also be able to check your man pages for mount to see what file types it allows for options.

I'm having no trouble with my Windows partitions. They worked out of the box; I didn't have to do anything to make it work.

I have PC-BSD 9.0 x86_64 (XFCE desktop) on my netbook.
When I try to connesct a FAT32 pen-drive, all work without problems: an icon appears for mounting (on my desktop) and, when I click "Execute", a second icon appears (for exploring; meanwhile, firt icon change to "Unmount") and I can explore and work. When I finish, click to execute the first icon and unmount my pen-drive. All good: a quit bizarre, but good.
But, when I attempt to connecti a external HD (NTFS formatted), the mount operation give some error (I don't understood what error preciselly: message tell me only the word "error", no specification). But HD are mounted the same.
But appear empty!
All space is "free space": no files, no directories.
After this, unmount option is impossible: when I execute "unmount", a windows to esplore is open, everytime.
So, I shutdown (in the regulary way) the System and disconnected (when PC was down) my external HD.
After this, connecting with a Windows XP desktop installation, my external HD appear in good state. All files and directories are. Nothing was destroyed. I have lost nothing.
But I ask to myself: are you sure that the NTFS support, on external devices, is really (and in good way) working in PC-BSD 9.0 x86_64 installation?...
My personal experience was not in that direction, I think...
