INSTALLATION of NTFS for MAC

The installation of NTFS for Mac is easy and straightforward, but needs a reboot to finalise installation. It also needs to load an extra file in order to make the menu bar add-on.

WHY USE NTFS for MAC

Can’t write, copy, edit or delete files on Microsoft NTFS-formatted drives from your Mac? It’s because macOS has limited support for Windows volumes — that is, you can only read data, but can’t write or delete anything. Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software provides blazing fast, unlimited read/write access to Microsoft NTFS hard drives, SSDs or thumb drives formatted for Windows computers! This version also supports Apple’s latest APFS file system (see image below).
This utility makes your external storage usable on any computer system Windows or Mac. So your data remains interchangeable and is fully adapted for macOS MOJAVE.

 

PREFERENCES

Beside the menu bar add-on, Paragon’s NTFS for Mac also has some preferences to set. Here you may choose to activate the new MOJAVE dark look which looks great. Even if you have never used the Disk Utility you will find it very easy to learn the simple interface.
