Hey guys, is there any free and reliable NTFS recommendations?

My previous NTFS software suddenly cannot read my external harddisk, and now I'm unable to write, copy and create after I delete the software.

Appreciate for your help guys.

Thank you.

There's 'NTFS-3G'
it's a very OLD app and there is no update for a LONG time.

Hasn't been updated to support macOS Big Sur.
Not compatible with Apple Silicon M1 Mac.

The easier thing to do is to copy out the data, format the drives as ExFAT, and you can use them easily across multiple OSes without needing to install third party drivers. Windows 7/10/11 PCs have no issue with ExFAT. Unless you're running a very old build of Windows Vista, you shouldn't have issues with it. For new drives, format it first before copying data to it.

It's far easier than relying on outdated software imo.

Please use this command in terminal

1.Sudo nano /etc/fstab
2.LABEL=NAME none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse

Save. Eject. Remount.

If your hard disk name has space for example Seagate Backup Plus Drive then you need to enter like this LABEL=Seagate\040Backup\040Plus\040Drive none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
