Paragon NTFS is much much better in terms of speed and stability.

Paragon NTFS is a program with costs, so it needs to be compared with Tuxera NTFS for Mac, which is the paid port of NTFS3G.

I heard that Snow Leopard is capable to read/write on NTFS. Why do we need Paragon ?

it's capable to read/write, but it's not capable working fast and safe, it might corrupt your ntfs partition, don't try it!

Good news to the final, i'm currently using the RC, it's way better than ntfs3g.

Duh! Haven't you been reading the reports from a zillion Hackintosh users till date? Including mine? :P :(

It corrupts the MFT and in the end you lose your precious data! Moreover, after the 10.6.3 update, you lose that read/write functionality.

Very aptly said Muitommy. By the way, you can now check out the final, post-RC build available for download as of today.

Lastly, thanks to Hazara for updating us on this awesome latest development.
Coz, I'd just downloaded the 'unmentionable', and it has been working amazingly ever since today morning.

Thank you very very much Hazara!

I thought SL only had read capabilities for NTFS? In any case the Paragon 7/8 product works great.

apple should just bundle NFTS capability by default FFS.
maybe in 10.7.....
it makes sense as it would improve the BootCamp experience.

Somebody faced this error code -50 when emptying the trash or deleting directories with Paragon NTFS 8.0 on 10.6.3 64-bit?

Thanks!

working great in 10.6.3 32, thx Mr. Chopra :D

Yes, faster than NTFS-3g/ Fuse, and DU can now even repair NTFS volumes, that's great. Even checks he $UpCase file if formatted for use in Windows Vista/7 or below.

"The volume /dev/disk0s12 has been repaired successfully" yippie (who broke it in the first place? hmm ...)

Yes. I've faced those errors a couple if times.

Did you use NTFS3G+MacFUSE prior to installing this package?
If so, the you have left over files from it, probably MacFuse PrefPane. Try finding it and deleting it asap.
For once, Boot to Windows and delete all .Trashes, .fseventsd, folders on each partition with NTFS file system.

Then, boot to OSX and check if you still get that error again or not?

i will reply my own question

its the third time (in different years using different tools) i test NTFS for mac and other tools and i only have one thing to say abou this STAY AWAY FROM THIS if you dont want to have problems in NFTS partitions...

first deleting folders in ntfs partitions you cant empty the trash... second if you want to move files and folders in ntfs partitiions be very carefull ! OSX overrides folder and files even if they have diferent names sometimes

i moved a file "video_25_1.avi" to a folder than i move another "video_25_2.avi" to the same folder and bang!!! i lost one video file for ever (if you check the names are not exacly the same)

i boot in windows 7 to check erros in partitions and voila non indexed files all over the place and data loss...

im back to the basics "macdrive" when i need to share data i just use macdrive like i have done for years (and i never have a single problem with that)


and the trash produced by OSX in NTFS partitions is incredible...

conclusion once again after a few tests i uninstall paragon ntfs from my osx and use blueharvest to clean all the junk in NTFS partitions...

this was the last attempt for sure , im tired of troubles...
