Writing with NTFS-3g not permitted
Thanks to the makers of NTFS-3G. Although I havent gotten it fully working it is a huge help being able to see data on my external NTFS drive that OSX cant mount!
Ive only run into 3 issues that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere yet, and haven't been able to solve on my own.
The first is the inability to complete a 'write' of a file to the partition. Upon completion of the file transferring to the drive I receive this message:
The operation cannot be completed because you do not have sufficient privileges for some of the items
I'm the sole user of this laptop and am on an Administrator account and have attempted even dragging a file off the drive and back on only to receive the same message.
The second is that the I/O performance seems lower then people are saying it should be. It takes just over 3 minutes for a 170MB file to copy to or from the drive.
The third is probably a known issue but the driver seems to directly conflict with Bootcamp's ability to recognize the partition as bootable if the partition is using NTFS-3G. The only fix Ive found is unmounting the said drive, deleting the ntfs-3g folder from /system/file systems/ and remounting the partition.
Can anyone suggest a work around or fix for any of the above?
