10.4: Use MacFuse to read and write to NTFS volumes
Authored by: Ethereal on Jun 07, '07 07:22:17PM

Yay. After two days of incessant head-banging, the InsanelyMac tip finally let me install ntfs-3g. Now, my NTFS-formatted MyBook doesn't appear AT ALL. Yes, boys and girls, I've made the huge technological advance of going from read-only to NOTHING AT ALL. I'm ready to drop this hideous oversized truck muffler down a well and go back to a PC.

What's an "unclean logfile?" Eww...

Running (well, finding, and then running) ntfs-3g from the terminal revealed an "unlean NTFS logfile" that could be cleansed (exorcised?) only by a holy Windows machine. A quick plug-in-and-eject to a handy XP laptop and MyBook is mounted read-write.
