 This command resizes an NTFS filesystem, expanding or
 shrinking it to the size of the underlying device.
+
+I<Note:> After the resize operation, the filesystem is marked
+as requiring a consistency check (for safety).  You have to boot
+into Windows to perform this check and clear this condition.
+Furthermore, ntfsresize refuses to resize filesystems
+which have been marked in this way.  So in effect it is
+not possible to call ntfsresize multiple times on a single
+filesystem without booting into Windows between each resize.
