NTFS-3G

Version: 2011.1.15 || Release Date: 2011-01-23 || License: GPL Developer: Tuxera Ltd. | App Owner: tuxera

NTFS-3G for Mac OS X is a software project designed to bring NTFS read/write support to Mac OS X along with additional advanced features.

It is based on NTFS-3G, the leading open source NTFS driver that is ported into numerous platforms, but also includes other software projects to build a complete toolset for managing NTFS volumes.

NTFS-3G itself is included in hundreds of Linux distributions; for example Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE and Ubuntu use NTFS-3G as the default NTFS driver. Development has been ongoing since 2006.

The download is source code, NOT a compiled binary! :-(

I just upgraded to the new Version: 2009.11.14 and had a little hiccup, and then the lead developer at Tuxera went and rewrote a patch (Update 1) to fix the problem I was having. How cool is that!?! The software works, what can I say. I am using the Ublio and it works well. Now if I could just find a PC to test this NTFS on! ;)

This is awesome. I am using Boot Camp to run a Windows XP NTFS partitian on my MacBook. It is the best and most stable platform to run Win XP on my Mac but it was read only from the MAC. NTFS-3G has made it read/write. It gave me a fright when it threw an error on mount/unmount the drive but I carried on regardless, forced the mount and all is well. It works like a dream.
