Previously, I’m not able to updates or copy any files from my Mac to my old NTFS external hard disk. My another new external hard disk works well as I had converted to FAT format after I bought it. But, I don’t think that is a good idea for me to reformat my old NTFS external hard disk as it still not solving the problem.
In this case, I found out users around Internet already came up with binary version (in DMG) of ntfs-3g, which enables my Mac book to load NTFS with read and write capability. Ok! You can try it if you want to.
According to their websites. NTFS-3G is the leading open source NTFS driver that is ported into numerous platforms. NTFS-3G is also included in hundreds of distributions. The Development has been ongoing since 2006.
