wait, isn't ntfs-3g free?

Hi dannymichel.

OF COURSE! IT IS FREE!

But the bugs, and crashes, and incomplete moved files, etc. are also FREE!

 

I tried it for a long time! Till Paragon NTFS for Mac 8.0 was not available.

NTFS3G+MacFuse can be used ... but isn't efficient and safe like this product.

 

Hence, if you'd check out my links you'll understand the "reference" to specific terms/words/phrases. :blowup:

Moreover, please search Insanelymac with ntfs freaky chokra.

 

You'll find a thread where the issues with NTFS3G+MacFuse in 64 bithave been discussed.

 

I'm a bit short on time here, else would have posted the links.

Maybe tomorrow. Hope hat's fine. TC. Bye!

 

Regards,

Freaky Chokra :wallbash:

If you're on Snow Leopard, just search for SL-NTFS on Macupdate.com

im on snow leopard now. i am using sl-ntfs. i think it is having adverse effects to my hdds as i write to them quite often, and it was not displaying the contents of one of my folders. i checked on linux for the folder, and the files were there, but was getting input/output error. i did a dskchk via windows 7 disk, and os x now seems to see the files.

Dear DannyMichel.

 

It'd be my FIRST post being rude!

You just don't get it now, do you dude? Huh?

 

It's coz guys like us have been through 5H1T that is why we take out some time, and notify newbies or N00BS like you to stay away from hazardous code, right?

But, Nada! Zilch. It just doesn't get through. The message that is.

Kindly check out these links so that you understand that you are only hours away from Catastrophically irreversible data loss.

Also Remember that Windows 7 32 bit or even 64 bit, has problems with the chkdsk "CheckDisk" utility.

It has a stack over overflow problem, that causes it to use all the PHYSICAL MEMORY Available without actually working or solving the disk's problems.

That also, has caused data loss and/or corruption several times.

YOU seem to be very much brave enough to run it, though!

 

Dear Friend, just browse through the Internet with search keywords for topics I've quoted in this reply.

You'll be enlightened just like Thomas Anderson in Matrix. :D

I would like to thank you for the info. I have read many of your recommended posts regarding ntfs read/write capabiities, regarding NTFS-3G + MacFuse, regarding your experience trying paragon.

I am a newbies so, it was of enormous help. :)
