    Today I got my new macbook pro :) Yay!

    But I had a slight problem with read/write rights (I wanted to delete files form the external after I have placed them on my Macbook)

    So I solved that with this code in terminal, which gave me write access to the drive.

    sudo nano /etc/fstab
    LABEL=EXT-DRIVE-NAME none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
    Open /Volumes

    While i was trying to copy multiple large files from different directories on the external drive to my macbook I ended up getting this error

    The operation can’t be completed because an unexpected error occurred (error code -8058)
    And now I can no longer see the Drive when I go to browse finder to /Volumes.

    I have tried restarting the system and alternating USB ports with no luck.

    Try to repair it from Windows.
    You enabled the NTFS write support in the Apple NTFS driver, but it was disabled for a reason, as you can see, it's not safe to use.
    I think ntfs-3g or paragon ntfs are better driver if you need write support.
