Tuxera NTFS is a practical and reliable solution for Mac users that need to access, read and write various disk partitions formatted using Windows.
Helps you gain unrestricted access to NTFS volumes
Unfortunately, Mac OS X does not allow its users to write on Microsoft Windows formatted NTFS volumes by default and, as a result, this can prove to be a major inconvenience for users that need to access this type of partitions.
Thanks to Tuxera NTFS, you can now read and write in NTFS formatted partitions directly from your Mac’s Finder. The advanced smart caching layer also ensures high data transfer speeds between your mac and a NTFS volume.
NTFS, short for New Technology File System, is a proprietary file system developed by Microsoft for its popular operating system, starting with Windows NT.
