"Works great!"

August 01, 2012  |  By cybergrace

 |  Version: Paragon NTFS 9.5

Pros

I can write & read PC-formatted flash & external drives! A lot of Mac folks format their flash and external drives as FAT32, they think this format is good because it is compatible with both Windows and Mac OS platforms. True... but, the maximum file size is only 4GB. That means you can't share many software installer files, movies and other large files. But, the Mac OS doesn't support writing to Windows-formatted NTFS volumes, what to do? Install third-party software so you can write and read NTFS (Windows) formatted flash drives and external disks with your Windows friends.

Cons

Why in the world doesn't Apple put the ability to read NTFS-formated external drives in the Operating System?! Why should we have to pay to use third party software?! The install instructions could be a bit easy for newbies.

Summary

I have a MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.8, and was going crazy trying to share an external hard drive with a Windows friend. I tried Tuxera and I couldn't install it. This Paragon program works, woo hoo! Apple should buy this program and put it in the Apple OS!

"Works on my late 2011 MacBook Pro."

July 09, 2012  |  By mk553

 |  Version: Paragon NTFS 9.5

Pros

Reads/writes to my second hard drive (Optibay) which has a NTFS partition for Windows user files.

Cons

Because I have my Mac user files located on a different drive, the program constantly popped up its System Preferences window after boot, but found a fix for it from Paragon on their discussion forms (involves removing a plist file).

Summary

I've used this for about 6 months with no troubles. Not sure why it's giving other reviewer's problems. Perhaps I got lucky with some incremental update? Worth a try, I would say. Easier to use than MacPorts.

"Don't buy or even try it."

January 07, 2012  |  By nilct

 |  Version: Paragon NTFS 9.5

Pros

None. It not only doesn't work, it gave you headache.

Cons

I installed it to my Macbook with os x 10.6.8. It made my drive disappear therefore I couldn't even read it. Tried to uninstall it but the uninstaller in the icon doesn't work. It took me a while to locate the file to uninstall it. I can read my drive after uninstall the program. I had the same experience as the other comment. Stay away.

"Try before you buy"

 |  Version: Paragon NTFS 9.5

Pros

I'm not sure yet.

Cons

NTFS drives won't mount with this program running.

Summary

Before I installed this program I could at least read NTFS drives. With this programming running NTFS drives won't even mount. :(
