|I've been grappling with a frustrating issue lately and thought I'd seek some advice from this knowledgeable community. The problem at hand is that I'm unable to write to my NTFS-formatted external hard drive when it's connected to my Mac.
Here's a bit of background: I've been using this NTFS-formatted external hard drive primarily on a Windows PC. However, now that I'm a recent Windows-to-macOS switcher and working on my Mac, I find myself unable to add or edit files on this drive. I need to collaborate on some documents, and it becomes a bit of a headache.
After some research, I'm aware that macOS doesn't offer native write support for NTFS drives. Formatting to exFAT is an option, but it means moving all my data somewhere else temporarily, which led me to consider third-party solutions. One NTFS for Mac solution that's come up is iBoysoft NTFS for Mac. It claims to enable full read-write access to NTFS drives on Mac, but I wanted to gather some insights and experiences from the community here.
Has anyone been through this before? If so, how did you resolve it? If you've tried iBoysoft NTFS for Mac or have alternative suggestions, please do share your thoughts and experiences. I'm eager to learn and resolve this problem.
Thanks a bunch!
