  1. Hi @smorf, If you or anyone else is still interested I've recently posted a guide in the Tutorials section on how to use the native Mac NTFS read/write capability that @matgeo mentions above. It's effective for temporary access if that's all you need and I've not experienced corruption issues.
  2. This guide describes how to remount an NTFS partition using native read/write support without requiring any third party software. Online resources indicate the Apple NTFS drivers have had this "experimental" feature or some time and my experience with it has been it's effective for temporary access. Create a folder called "Mount" inside your user profile folder and enter the following commands in Terminal: diskutil list (Identify the NTFS drive or partition ID diskXsX) sudo umount /dev/diskXsX sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw,auto,nobrowse /dev/diskXsX ~/Mount You now have full access under "/Users/username/drivename" but not on the desktop or in Finder toolbar which aren't supported. Later in Windows you may need to set the NTFS permissions under the security properties tab when you try to access any files and folders you added to that drive. Extended attributes on some files can cause them to be grayed out when the drive is mounted in macOS/OSX again. If so open Terminal change to the NTFS drive or subfolder and enter the command below to correct this problem: xattr -d com.apple.FinderInfo * Unmount or eject the drive when finished. You must eject the drive in Windows using the Safely Remove Hardware icon in the task try otherwise it won't mount as read/write in Mac. There is also a tool called Mounty that automates this process and covers most of this info on it's website.
