Tuxera NTFS for Mac now supports macOS Sierra

With the much-awaited launch of macOS Sierra, we’re pleased to announce that Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2016 is now available! Macworld has a great overview of the new features in Sierra, so be sure to check them out if you’re not quite up to speed. For us, two interesting improvements stand out. One is Sierra’s new Optimized Storage. This new feature frees up storage space on your Mac by automatically moving rarely used files to iCloud. This of course requires you to buy a subscription for iCloud storage if you need more than the free 5 GB of space you get.

Another new development is Apple File System (APFS), which starting in 2017, will replace the decades-old HFS+. APFS is scalable from Apple Watches to Mac Pros, and should bring better interoperability between all Apple products. It’s also more secure and reliable than HFS+. Although APFS won’t ship in Apple devices until next year, we’re keeping an eye on all the latest developments. 

Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2016 brings support for Windows drives to macOS Sierra

As with previous versions, Tuxera NTFS for Mac brings full read-write compatibility with Windows NTFS-formatted drives to your Mac. Our software makes it possible for you to access, edit, store, and transfer files hassle-free. It supports macOS Sierra, OS X El Capitan, and all previous OS X versions from 10.4 (Tiger) onward. If you aren’t upgrading to macOS Sierra, we still recommend upgrading Tuxera NTFS for Mac for all the latest features and improvements.

For our existing customers, upgrades to our latest versions are always free of charge, so you won’t need to buy a new license for the 2016 version. If you do not have a license for Tuxera NTFS for Mac, it’s a convenient, one-time purchase valid for the entire lifetime of the software! Visit our product page to buy the software or download and try it free for 15 days. If you have any questions or feedback, our support team is happy to help. Get in touch at macsupport@tuxera.com.
