Macintosh computers provide very little in the way of native support for the NTFS file system, making it difficult to read and write any drives that have been formatted in Windows. NTFS has long been the default file system used by the Microsoft Windows line of operating systems, but Mac OS X has yet to provide adequate native support for it. This causes problems, if for example, you want to be able to access files on a USB pen drive that has been formatted in Windows. Fortunately, however, there is now a way to get full read and write compatibility with NTFS formatted drives in Mac OS X, and this is where Tuxera NTFS for Mac comes in. Providing full compatibility with any storage media formatted with NTFS, accessing and using files will now be a hassle-free process.
Excellent Compatibility Options
Providing full data protection and excellent performance, Tuxera NTFS for Mac is exceptionally ease to use. The latest edition of the program provides complete support for all versions of Mac OS X from version 10.4 to Yosemite. In addition, it supports the 64-bit kernel, allowing the program to take advantage of modern computing hardware and work as optimally as possible. The program sports a number of more advanced features as well, including full support for the extended attributes used by the NTFS file system. It is also fully compatible with popular virtualization and encryption solutions such as TrueCrypt, Parallels Desktop and VMWare Fusion. It is possible to integrate Tuxera NTFS for Mac into your products so that they themselves can provide native support for this popular file system in Macintosh computers.
User-Friendly Tools at Your Disposal
Designed with ease of use in mind, the learning curve with Tuxera NTFS for Mac is minimal. You can also format external hard drives, USB sticks or other media with the NTFS format by using the Disk Utility function in the program. The Disk Utility program also provides support for disk repair and more. The program itself sports a user-friendly interface with an intuitive set of icons and an activity log. The program provides full interoperability with all storage media formatted using the NTFS file system right out of the box with no additional configuration necessary. By contrast, the Mac OS X operating system itself can only natively read files from storage devices formatted in Windows, leaving you unable to copy, edit or delete any files on the drive.
Thanks to the smart caching layer provided by Tuxera NTFS for Mac, full data protection and excellent performance become a reality, and you can access and work with data on NTFS-formatted drives in much the same way as you would with Windows itself. At the same time, your data will be kept safe and secure.
