NTFS driver developed from the popular open-source NTFS-3G driver.

Humm... Does this mean that from now on, NTFS-3G will be treated as a second class citizen?

Hello. I am writing a negative review about this program. I enclose screenshots of correspondence with macsupport@tuxera.com, as well as repair receipts, after installing their program. This program erased the bootloader in the BIOS. I had to pay an overhaul. Tuxera is in no hurry to offset these costs. I also suffered work losses, but I ask you to compensate for the repair of my MacBook. http://joxi.ru/D2PGxW5IqGl3Dm http://joxi.ru/xAe6ndqURo79Jr http://joxi.ru/DrlR8n4iVp5Lv2 If anyone is interested in detailed correspondence, I can forward it to your email. http://joxi.ru/l2ZE5BOizpOgNm

Never download even the try out version of this sticky software. I made this mistake and even after deleting it keeps on asking me to delete. Terrible.

As of Dec 2018, the price for one license is actually only $18 USD, not the $31 listed on this page. And all updates/upgrades free for life, AND one license covers ALL your Macs, if for personal or non-commercial use. Latest update supports Mojave.

Compare that to the Pa@#$n NTFS product price of $21 per license, ONE LICENSE PER MACHINE, plus update fees (about $15) every time Apple issues a new macOS. There are some who say the Pa@#$n NTFS is faster, I can't say; Tuxera is 'fast enough' for my purposes; YMMV. I tried the Pa@#$n NTFS product about 5 years ago, after install and reboot, my Bootcamp disappeared

Version 2016.1 is from November 2016. Not sure why it's showing up as new?

In my modest opinion this is the best application of the genre.

With the last update, there is a new application installed called Tuxera Disk Manager. This is what allows reformatting to NTFS.

When you format a drive you will need to unmount the drive before you hit the "format" button. Also, there isn't any progress bar so just be patient, it will look like it isn't doing anything, but it will finish. I tested this on a Silicon-Power 2TB external HD and an 8GB PNY flash drive.

And a huge bonus...(at least I hadn't noticed it before if it was there) it now supports formatting to ext2/3/4. Yay!
