    I have a 2nd drive on my macbook pro and I would like to share this drive between my OSX and Win 7 partitions.

    I was wondering iff I'm better of with MacDrive + HFS+ Drive on Windows 7 or with Paragon + NTFS Drive on OSX.

    So far I have tested Paragon on OSX but copying files from OSX to the NTFS drive was amazingly slow. Cant stand such slow speeds.

    Could anyone confirm if MacDrive would behave the same way? I'm most concerned about speed/performance here.

    I did not wanted to use exFat but if MacDrive is going to be as slow as Paragon, there will be no other way.

    Any recent ideas? Most topics about this matter are from 2009-2011.

    Using Mac Drive on my Windows 7 Bootcamp I installed it and in wit reads/writes HFS+ externals as if they were native drives.
