    I have a MacBook and a 1 tb fat32 Western Digital External Hard Drive. I would like to transfer the data from this external hard drive to another external hard drive that i can use on my work "pc". When I try to add or remove data from the NTFS hardrive on the mac I cannot; however I can access the files. I cannot add or remove. I tried using carbon copy cloner and that didnt work either. This has created a large problem. If additional information is needed please let me know!

    NTFS (Windows NT File System)
    • Read/Write NTFS from native Windows.
    • Read only NTFS from native Mac OS X
      [*]To Read/Write/Format NTFS from Mac OS X, here are some alternatives:
      • For Mac OS X 10.4 or later (32 or 64-bit), install Paragon (approx $20) (Best Choice for Lion)
      • For 32-bit Mac OS X, install NTFS-3G for Mac OS X (free) (does not work in 64-bit mode)
      • For 64-bit Snow Leopard, read this: MacFUSE for 64-bit Snow Leopard
      • Some have reported problems using Tuxera (approx $36).
      • Native NTFS support can be enabled in Snow Leopard and Lion, but is not advisable, due to instability.
    • AirPort Extreme (802.11n) and Time Capsule do not support NTFS
    • Maximum file size: 16 TB
    • Maximum volume size: 256TB
