Config Properties and SL-NTFS enable native NTFS read/write support for OS X Snow Leopard December 15, 2010

Posted by Steven in Apple, In-Media.

I may be very late to the game here… However I just learned that Mac OS X Snow Leopard includes an Apple NTFS driver which natively supports read and write access to NTFS partitions. As I said: this is only the case in Apple Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard”. I have been told that in the beta versions the write access was enabled but in the final version it is not.

Nevertheless you can re-enable the write access with some manual tweaking or with a couple of freeware tools. I recently discovered “SL-NTFS” a nice comfortable little freeware tool. Snow Leopard users who frequently use NTFS volumes should check it out.
