Paragon NTFS

Provides full read and write access to Windows NTFS drives in macOS.

Paragon NTFS overview

Paragon NTFS breaks down the barriers between Windows and macOS. Paragon NTFS effectively solves the communication problems between the Mac system and NTFS. Write, edit, copy, move, delete files on NTFS volumes from your Mac. Access all your NTFS drives and perform the most common volume operations like mount, unmount, and verify. Quickly restart your Mac in Windows from the menubar if it is installed on your mounted NTFS drive. Excellent solution for end-users, SOHO, and enterprise, supports all NTFS versions from Windows NT 3.1 to Windows 8 (NTFS versions 1.2, 3.0, and 3.1), and mounts the NTFS volumes as native ones.

Features
  • Unprecedented high NTFS performance. The transfer rate is the same as with the native HFS file system.
  • Familiar interface that is similar to Apple’s Disk Utility.
  • Menu Bar add-on that gives you 1-click
  • Enable ownership and specify which users are allowed to access each newly-created file or folder, along with their read/write/execute privileges.
  • Save last access time if you need macOS to recall every file you access on a selected volume.
  • Enable spotlight indexing if you want instant Spotlight search, and if you want to view the detailed info about volume used space: how much space is occupied by applications, music, video, photos, etc.
  • Mount in read-only if you need to access sensitive data without modifying any files.
  • Do not mount automatically if you want to manually control access to a volume.

I dared install the latest (v15.9.314) on my M1 MacBook Air. *Don't do it.* After rebooting three times, what resulted was an outrageously sluggish Mac. Rebooting again didn't help. I uninstalled it and all was happy again. This is moribund software, poorly and carelessly coded, IMHO of course. Sad.

Be careful to all users/customers with M1 chip. Their product does not work and they request to reduce security settings giving who knows what rights to them and secondly to potential other intruders. Customer support is sth like copy/paste answers and their favourite answer is contact apple.

This used to be a great software untill it f'ked up on M1 mac! I took a backup of my old system and copied the things back to the new system. However, at random PDF and Image files are corrupted!! I ran more tests by copying a big folder of images to and fro. 2-5% files are getting corrupted consistently. I have formatted all my disks with exFAT or HFS+.

It's as if this company's brains got scrambled. I try to log in to update Paragon NTFS inside the app and it spews at me: "LSL_ERR_BAD_CREDENTIALS". So I go to their website and log in anyway. W T F is going on over there? I had a recent debacle with them over the incredible NON-functionality of their Paragon Hard Disk Manager, and there they are promoting it on their home page, trying to rake in the suckers. I go to get the Paragon NTFS update direct from my account and it instead it downloads old v15.5.106. - - Are they trying to destroy themselves?! Do they have a death wish? I find this upsetting as I like their software a lot, when it actually works! (O_o)

Excellent app. But several hours later my credit card was used fraudulently for several purchases. New card used first time for this purchase and no others. Luckily a Visa credit card so can claim the money back. So not so impressed with their security.

I haven't had any problems with the software itself (using Mojave), but don't use it a whole lot either. What does bug me is that there have been several updates since version 15.5.106 was successfully installed on my machine, but the few I tried by downloading from MacUpdate did not install (or dorked things, I forget). Their support staff just said that "soon" there would be a version that I would be able to install automatically via their product, but that never happened. Maybe they just blew off Mojave as when I check for updates using their software there never are any beyond 15.5.106. And yet here is 15.6.17... (I did have one bad software experience with one of their other products several years back, but I just stopped using that one.)

I tried it the other day, Yes, it worked. But I only needed it once, so I tried to uninstall because every day I got a notification was available, and there was no way to stop it. I tried to use their uninstaller, but Bit-Defender, the best anti-virus on the market instantly flagged and stopped it. That was bad enough. But manually deleting the program using App Zap didn't stop the notifications. I had to track it down to a folder in the preferences/application support folder. I notified them, thinking their website had been hacked, but got no response. Avoid this one.

This software is malware. Once you install it, you can't get rid of it. It sends terribly annoying notifications. I hate it. This is hostile behavior. Those responsible for this should be ashamed.

I see lots of people complaining about support and licencing. I must be in luck because it seems every time i come back to mac, i've gotten new upgrades for free (for all 3 licences i own, none the less) - First from 13 to 14, and now from 14 to 15 for some strange reason. Well i'm not complaning. Anyway, never had any problems with paragon NTFS. Works a treat if you ask me!

Well, it works, but my god is this ever the flakiest piece of software when it comes to whatever licensing scheme they're using! Once a week it forgets my paragon login and my registration details / license key. On a reboot, or an update, or using a VPN, and seemingly randomly. No other software i've paid for does this. Yet again the notification pops up that it's unregistered, and I have to go through logging in again. This isn't being good to customers. It should just stay in the background and do its job.

The current version is v15.4.11. It is updated to work with macOS 10;.14 Mojave. It supports Dark Mode. The one thing I found confusing about using NTFS for Mac with Boot Camp is when the Windows system is in 'Hibernation Mode'. Apparently, in order to mount a Boot Camp volume as read/write, it has to be Shut Down, rather than restarted when returning to a macOS boot volume. Why does Window 'Hibernate' when restarted? Very annoying. But that's apparently a Microsoft thing.
