Tuxera NTFS updated with 64-bit support

updated 02:00 am EDT, Tue October 12, 2010

Extended attributes, simpler installation added

Tuxera NTFS, one of several drivers designed to enable full NTFS support on Macs, has updated their version with full 64-bit support, included extended attributes, and a simpler install process. The new features are specifically aimed at users of mid-August (2010) Mac Pros -- the first to have Snow Leopard's 64-bit kernel run as the default -- though the driver is useable in both 32-bit and 64-bit environments.

Like its competitors, Tuxera's NTFS for Mac driver works with Apple's included (but obscured and unsupported) NTFS support to both read and write to NTFS volumes. The commercial application builds upon Tuxera's own open-source option, NTFS-3G, but adds smart caching and other features to improve speed, claiming to be the fastest NTFS driver on the market and compatible with OS virtualizers such as Parallels Desktop and VMWare's Fusion, as well as TrueCrypt.

The program is available as a 15-day free trial. The cost for a single license is $31.
