A free utility for NTFS writing on Mac OS X 10.6.5?
I'm a MacOS newbie so apologies if this is a dumb question.
I currently have an iMac running Snow Leopard and a Windows 2008 box with its primary HDD set as NTFS. I'm a little confused as to why I can read from AND write to this NTFS drive from my iMac (both machines are on the same domain), however, if I connect an NTFS external HDD, I can only read from it and not write to it. I just wondered what the difference is between these two scenarios?
I will soon need to be able to attach external USB HDD drive to my iMac and write files (larger than 4gb) to it, and then attach that USB HDD to any one of my Windows 2008/Windows 7 machines, again for reading and writing. Can anyone also advise as to what the best approach for this might be?
