    Hello everyone I’m new to the forum.
    I just purchased my new mac very happy with it.
    NTFS was my only thing and I need help with it.

    I did a guide and I installed

    NFTS-3G + Fix
    MacFUSE 2.2.2 (installed 2.0 first tried to remove it with no luck, updated it to 2.2.2 and found no problems)

    But this raised some questions.
    Tried to remove 2.2.2 and it gave me a spinning ball and that’s it, is still in my preferences and I don’t know if is removed or not. Can someone explain?

    Was MacFUSE a good choice? I head OSXFuse was better since it has support, this leads to this question: Was is the best choice to write NTFS Files to Mac???

    I mounted my other drive and it told me it wasn’t properly mounted if I click force is it okay?

    Can someone help me with these things? Thank you in advance!

    So, you might want to rewrite the question before bumping - doesn't make sense at all.

    I assume the first word in the sentence is supposed to be "What". But even after that, I can't tell if you are asking how to write to an NTFS formatted drive which is mounted on your mac, or copy files from an NTFS formatted drive to your mac.

    Paragon NTFS seems to be the most popular choice among forum users, but it is $19.99.
