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.

x9329724 <--Thank You! --> A big FU to Paragon for continued incoherence and NO UPGRADE DISCOUNT (yet anyway) --> v16 INFORMATION: [1] It is REQUIRED if you're running macOS 14.x Sonoma. v15 won't work on Sonoma. IOW: This is yet another reason to not yet upgrade to macOS Sonoma, like there weren't enough already. [2] COMPATIBILITY LIST for v16: macOS Sonoma, Ventura, Monterey, Big Sur, High Sierra, Sierra. As with v15, v16 is Apple ARM M-Series compatible. - - More information can be found in the latest Product Documentation @ https://dl.paragon-software.com/doc/NTFS_for_Mac-OP.pdf

Humph. Weirdness, again. On my M1 MacBook Air v15.11.839 says it's up to date. So where is v15.12.78??? I go to download it here at MU and am directed to the web page for NTFS for Mac. I hit the "Download" button and what downloads? v16.1.82. What?! I check out their website for ANY documentation of version numbers, especially any version 16 series. And I find: NOTHING. *sigh* I'll be sticking with what I have rather than dive down a new rabbit hole at quirky Paragon. (0_o)

I'm not sure this will even work on my M2 Mac Mini. I've beat my head for an hour and a half trying to install and it will not. Total was of money - purchased a couple months ago thinking there would be an update to fix the install - NO. What a shame since NTFS for Mac was very good in the past, now a waste of money.

Release Notes for v15.10.590: "What's new: • Critical macOS Ventura 13.3 compatibility fix." - - This update was posted the day the final beta of macOS 13.3 had been released to developers. It's uncertain when the finished version of 13.3 will be released, but it could be any day.

Paragon NTFS for Ventura 13.0 was easily downloaded and was working. BUT it corrupted something on my MacBookAir so that I as soon as it was loaded, I was unable to connect to the Internet, no matter what Apple or I did. Spent hours troubleshooting. Solution: A factory Install of entire OS from Apple via recovery mode. (Thank goodness I had time machine updated on my Mac). Paragon said it was compatible and I wanted to believe them because I have been running Paragon NTFS for the past 4 years. Paragon responded but have no solution. I loaded it again, followed all steps and immediately got the greyed out internet signal with an explanation mark going through it. Uninstalled the Paragon, called apple again, tried again to resolve the issue, no explanation, had to do a factory install of OS from Apple via recovery mode again! Paragon does not have an answer, but obviously they have a glitch. Also, some people I know are still able to use the previous version of Paragon NTFS on their Venturar 13.0 , but for some reason, I was forced to seek the newest software from Paragon a few weeks ago....anyhow...its very depressing as now i don't know what software to use for NTFS for Ventura 13.2.1!!!!!!!!! I am giving Paragon a 1 star because it worked beautifully for 4 years and they did respond to my ticket
