    Hi all, I just updated to OSX Mavericks. I have two external drives which are both NTFS.

    I've never run NTFS Paragon for Mac so I wanted to know if it's possible for NTFS Paragon could potentially damage my data. What are the risks of using this app?

    Thank you for any help!

    ----------

    Could someone give me feedback please?

    I don't think paragon is mavericks compatible. But I could be wrong.

    If you didn’t know, OSX can read NTFS natively, it just can’t write. I had a couple of old NTFS drives, dropped them in an external chassis, copied the data off, reformatted to HFS, back it went :)

    Like you, I’m wary of apps/extensions for dealing with non-native filesystems.
