NTFS for Mac OS X released
Paragon Software Group today released NTFS for Mac OS X, enabling Mac users to take advantage of Microsoft's NTFS filesystem. NTFS for Mac OS X allows Mac owners to rapidly read and write to NTFS volumes under Mac OS, providing access to the contents therein and ultimately opening the door to cross-filesystem communication. The software is available in one single edition that includes a standard DMG disk image containing the installation package, which is priced at $40 but is available for $30 as an introductory offer. NTFS for Mac requires Mac OS X 10.4.6 or later, 128MB of memory, and at least a PowerPC G4 or faster processor.
"We know that many users of Apple computers have to work with high quality graphics and face file system restrictions for large files. With our driver they don't have any problems with such files transfer anymore," said Konstantin Komarov, CEO of Paragon. "Besides, working under Windows OS installed on Mac became much easier from this moment."
