When it comes to Windows NTFS-formatted USB drives, Macs are only built for reading. That means you can open files stored on those drives, but you can’t edit, copy, move, or delete those files using your Mac. To write files, you need an add-on NTFS-driver.

Tuxera NTFS for Mac is easy-to-use software that makes this all possible.

Use external USB drives previously formatted in Windows

Swap drives regularly between Windows PCs and Macs

Seamless data exchange if you dual boot Windows andmacOS/OS X

Easy file handling if you run Windows through a virtual machine (such as VMWare®)

Easily swap and change drives

Use the same external USB drives no matter what you use – Windows PCs or Macs. Tuxera NTFS for Mac adds full read and write capability for Windows NTFS-formatted drives.

Preserve what’s important

Unexpected power cuts or unplugging a USB drive at the wrong time can cause data loss – or worse – damage the drive. Our market-leading fail-safe technology keeps your videos, pictures, and other files intact, plus prevents drive corruption.

Wait less for file transfers

Tuxera NTFS for Mac provides fast, sustained file transfer speeds with our smart caching technology. That means less time waiting for files to save or copy between your USB drive and Mac.
