Way 1. Write to NTFS Drives on Mac with Paragon NTFS for Mac
My NTFS drive worked properly with creating stab entry. But if I connect my drive to windows PC and and do any operation then it does not work in mac if I try write operation. Okay, I have been jumping from website to website wondering why it didn't work for me the method one, that is and I finally found the solution and am putting it out for everyone everywhere. The reason it did not work for me was because I was using an internal hard drive converted to an external using adaptors and stuff.
It was formatted as an NTFS drive and almost all descriptions between that drive and my Seagate drive were identical, but for some reason, the terminal method worked for my Seagate but not for my internal drive. It could very well be due to lack of power supply, and I'll probably be messing around to find out the cause. I am a bit unsure if I should do it with the same drive that contains a shit-ton of data, so I'll stay down for now. I used option 2 and it worked well. Later, I removed the nobrowse option from the fstab so that the volume would show on the desktop and the left-hand pane of the Finder window.
I found that more useful. Used option 2 and it worked as advertised.
I did remove the nobrowse option later so that the drive would appear on the desktop and left-hand pane of the Finder window. I find that more useful. Urgent Question! After upgrading the mac to Sierra my computer didnt allow me to edit files in my external drive. So I just tried the first method.
After entering the code to the terminal I can't even see my Samsung hard drive in the finder. Can someone help me to relocate , or bring it back? However nothing is changed. The driver is lost.

How to create alias? Rinse and repeat all steps again if you have multiple hard drive. I forgot something. I recommend you to make alias or symlink to Volumes folder instead linking to the hard drive directly. Type this command:. This way, you only has one shortcut to all of your NTFS drive and you safely eject those drive by right-clicking to the drive icon. I did method 1 fstab hack and it worked, then I can used my 2TB Toshiba disk again, actually I saved some new files on the external disk. But, suddenly, after saved them appartenly without problems now I can see only 9 files on the Finder they sum up 10 GB while the disk info says it has GB.
I tried to save again same files and Finder says they are already there overwrite or abandone Ive tried to revert the fstab hack and , again, it was like at the beginning, without writing or modifying the disk but ONLY with the last 9 files showed What happened??? The rest of the files seem to be there but i cant see them I cant open them.

It all happend when, after checking I could modify the files after fstab hack i saved new files on the disk anyone can help me please?? The first option didn't work for me, the volume is disappered and not showing up on everywhere unless I revert to original settings delete fstab file.
The second option worked for me, same as alexei, though the installation of ntfs-3g I would advise against using the FUSE method 2. There are many issues with this involving overwriting files and directories. This is why I use paragon, although it is at a cost, it is reliable and I have piece of mind when it comes to data integrity. Thank you Dan Price for these steps, the second option worked for me! Though the installation of ntfs-3g I used the Terminal method on my Mac El Capitan..
But i was trying to solve the problem for my dad. I tried it on his Mac El Capitan , it didn't work. I tried the Terminal method again on his Mac, it worked. I ejected the drive and put it back. It didn't work again.
stepascredas.tk I gave up :. I can find it in my Disk utilities but I am not able to do anything with it there. Your directions are nearly flawless.
I ran into one hiccup: my drive name, "Library A," had a space in it and it didn't work. Replaced the space with and underscore and everything is aces. Dear all, Thanks for your suggestions. Then the disk disappeared from the screen and I have not been able to make it show up again! Any help with this? Anyone having the same problem? How do I delete that line? I attempted to use the terminal method to no avail so I then attempted to use the 3rd part tools again to no avail.
I followed all the instructions to the best of my abilities and nothing worked. To say that I am furious is an understatement. If I had known I would no longer be able to use my external hard drives anymore I never would have upgraded.
