Main features of NTFS.

NTFS supports large hard drives. Comparing to the old FAT line of file systems, like FAT12/16/32, NTFS supports a larger partition size. In the Windows 8/10 and newer Server systems, it can support a hard drive up to 16EB. And it can support a single file size up to 256TB.

You can set disk usage quotas on NTFS partitions. In this way, the administrator can restrict the amount of disk space that a user can take up. It's used mainly on a network drive. It can help you manage space on NTFS drive flexibly.

EFS (Encrypting File System) is another important feature supported by NTFS. With file-level encryption, you can easily encrypt individual files/folders on NTFS partitions. It’s quicker and flexible than full-disk encryption.

To make your data safe, the NTFS offers a way for system changes to be written to a log, or a journal before the changes are actually written. In the event of a failure, it allows the file system to revert to previous and well-working conditions because the new changes have yet to be committed.

There are new file attributes available with NTFS, like the compressed attribute and indexed attribute. NTFS includes other features as well, such as hard links, sparse files, reparse points, Volume Shadow Copy Service, transactional NTFS, and so on.
