    hi guys

    i said on a previous thread that i couldn't write in my external HDD
    and i got help to be able to write
    i was given some apps' names that can let me write

    and when i started installing one of them i decided to cancel the installing for a personal reason (i basically clicked "cancel" and didn't force quit or used any irregular move)

    and the next time i tried read my external HDD the computer said what is on the attached image and refused to read it

    please help

    You may need to uninstall and reinstall MacFUSE. What version of Mac OS X are you running? And exactly where did you get the NTFS-3G that you installed?

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    I recommend using Paragon

    yeah but i mean is do i own the app forever like the App Store apps with its coming updates or i just have the service for a specific period of time


    and also GGJ pleaaaaaaaaaase I'm being frustrated because when removed NTFS-3G manually as you told me and replugged the HDD it said "The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer" and gave 3 options:Initialize,Ignore and Eject

    Yes, you own the app, just like App Store apps.
    After you remove NTFS-3G, you need to install Paragon before you can read and write to NTFS drives.
