Mac OS X comes with an NTFS driver but it does not support writing to NTFS volumes out-of-the box. The fix is here. We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Tuxera NTFS for Mac Trial. You can download it here. Please note that this is a release candidate version and the final one will be available before the 15-day trial period is over.
After installation, Tuxera NTFS becomes visible in your System Preferences.
There are many options you can play with. See the manual for explanations.
This is a release candidate version and a major upgrade from our previous open source NTFS-3G for Mac. Performance has been significantly improved along with other enhancements. We are pretty sure this is the fastest read/write NTFS driver you can have for Mac. We have successfully tested it on Tiger, Leopard and Snow Leopard. Please send us any issues you find and we will fix them before the final release is out and available for purchase.
