Tuxera NTFS Overview
Tuxera NTFS is a commercial NTFS driver developed from the popular open-source NTFS-3G driver, which is a natural part of all major Linux distributions, and also has lots of users on macOS, FreeBSD, Solaris, and NetBSD.
It has been engineered to bring our customers maximum possible performance when accessing NTFS drives while keeping their data safe. It also offers some additional features to its open source counterpart, NTFS-3G, along with commercial support.
Apple’s macOS offers very limited support for Microsoft Windows NTFS formatted hard drives and other storage media out of the box. By default OS X can only read files from Windows-formatted hard drives leaving the users unable to edit, copy or delete anything. Tuxera NTFS for Mac solves this problem providing full read-write compatibility across platforms.
