View Full Version : getting NTSF drives to cross-platform

11 November 2012, 05:08 AM
Hi all
I've got a few NTFS harddrives which I've initialized in WindowsXP 64.
I'd love to be able to access them from my MacBookPro (running OS 10.6)
Seems I can copy files from the drive but can't write to it - MacOS says it's locked.

Anyone out there know the solution to this problem?

thanks & best

U use paragon the other way round, for reading mac drives on windows, it works, but its not the safest system ever, ive had corrupted drives.

hi, you may want to give the EFI (UEFI) format a try on the drive and see if that will better for you.
