10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: sirkingchase on Apr 07, '13 10:00:26AM

You dont have to screw around with /etc/fstab That is not mac native and it is unnessary, unless you want to have that drive always mounted so it can get messed up.

Dont you Especially if you are working with a USB harddrive, you cant even get the UUID from that.

Only mount when you need it -

sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw /dev/disk3s1 /Volumes/NTFS

in there

10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: mvmaastricht on Aug 01, '13 02:16:33AM
Seems like a nice tip, but doesn't work with my external USB NTFS 2,5 inch drive.

I get: mount_ntfs: /dev/disk1s1 on /Volumes/MyDrive: Resource busy

(while it's not busy)
