10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: ax86 on Apr 21, '10 03:25:13PM

The method is good and fast enough. But it is not stable. Last time I tried to use my external drive with 2 NTFS partitions, I got that Spotlight freezed and when I tried to remove the drive the system crashed with message that I need to hold the power button to reboot my MacBook Pro... Not so good.
Before that native NTFS write support maked contents of whole directory unreachable. I had to use chkdsk to fix the issue. It took 3 hour of my time...
I think it's better to use ntfs-3g. It's not so fast. But it's more stable.
