One the many things Mac users have to deal with in a mixed environment is NTFS-formatted external hard drives. Especially if they’re shared, this puts Macs at a disadvantage because OS X does not have native NTFS write privilege.

Paragon NTFS for Mac 7.0 provides instant gratification by pulling all the strings in the background, supplying you with instant NTFS support; and puts you and your Mac back in the game.

Today, we’ve got a whopping 20 licences worth $800 to hand out as the grand finale to our 11-day must-have Mac apps giveaway.


Like I mentioned earlier, Paragon NTFS installs itself on your Mac and supplies write support for NTFS-formatted Windows hard disks. And it’s in no way crippled; read and write performance approach native Mac HFS transfer speeds. View the benchmark results here.

Plug in any NTFS external hard disk and Finder will automatically mount it without hesitation. Notice the read and write permissions?

There’s nothing more to it. Install it and leave it be. You’ll be accessing Windows partitions on your Mac so naturally that you’ll forget that Paragon NTFS is actually running the show. It has a preference pane in System Preferences where it will list attached NTFS partitions.

Paragon NTFS is also bundled with MacBrowser — a Windows file-browser which is capable of reading Mac HFS formatted hard disks; closing the gap between the two operating systems in a mixed environment. Read a complete list of its features here.

When it comes to must-have apps, Paragon NTFS is definitely a worthy contender. Download the 10-day trial (MacBrowser not included) to let it impress you. If you’re sold, grab yourself a free copy now!
