10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: lordmorgul on Oct 05, '09 01:02:23AM

I've been using NTFS-3G for years doing daily accesses to my NTFS backup drives and dual or triple boot configured machines. Yes, there is a possibility that corruption or damage could occur... but I've literally written hundreds of gigabytes to NTFS drives without ever having it happen. It is a very robust and well fleshed out driver package. In all honesty... I'd be more concerned about a Windows box BSODing and leaving my disk damaged than I ever would be concerned about a Linux or OSX machine writing bad data through NTFS-3G.
