Full Interoperability

Apple’s OS X offers very limited support for Microsoft Windows NTFS formatted hard drives and other storage media out of the box. By default OS X can only read files from Windows-formatted hard drives leaving the users unable to edit, copy or delete anything. Tuxera NTFS for Mac solves this problem providing full read-write compatibility across platforms.

Tuxera NTFS for Mac delivers the fastest NTFS file transfer speeds on a Mac while protecting your data with its new, smart caching layer.
