10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: eastendlights on Mar 18, '11 08:50:27PM

I agree - this mod works but is not stable and dangerous. I nearly lost 1TB of data, my external NTFS drive appeared empty after i wrote a file to it. hooked it back up to a windows machine, and it found errors and the errors were fiixed and all the files are back... (I think). but don't take your chances.

be best off using bootcamp partition on parallels to read files off your mac drive, then write to the NTFS external drive. a bit of a workaround, but it will do. better than losing important data.
