I have a USB 2.0 500GB External Western Digital Hard Drive ("My Book") and it's formated in NTFS. Up until now I've only used it with my Windows PC, and would like to transfer some files (from the hard drive) to my 2010 MacBook Pro (which has Parallels 5 and a Windows 7 virtual machine), and to a new 2011 iMac which I'll be buying soon. A. If I DO NOT wish to install any sort of program/pluggin for OS X, can I simply: 1. Load Parallels and my Windows 7 virtual machine. 2. Plug the external NTFS hard drive to the USB 2.0 port. 3. Have Windows recognize the drive and transfer my files to Windows. 4. Drag and drop my files (or shared folders) from Windows to OS X? B. If I DO wish to install a program/pluggin (for OS X), a.Which is the best free one? Is it NTFS-3G? http://macntfs-3g.blogspot.com/2010/10/ntfs-3g-for-mac-os-x-2010102.html b. Is that safe to use? (have plenty of important files in my Hard Drive). c. How does it work? Do I just install it, plug my hard drive within OS X, and drag and drop from finder or so? Any settings I should be aware of? Transferring files would only be "Read", would the plug-in support "Write" too? Thanks!
