|Description:||FUSE NTFS filesystem (2010.8.8-1)|
The NTFS-3G driver is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. It provides safe and fast handling of the Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows 2000 and Windows Vista file systems. Most POSIX file system operations are supported, with the exception of full file ownership and access right support.
To connect to an NTFS volume: First unmount the NTFS disk if currently mounted read-only. You can use Disk Utility to do this and also to get the partition. You can also use the following script to get a list of available NTFS volumes: diskutil list | grep Windows_NTFS The last thing on each line should be something like disk1s1 which is the disk partition. Prefix it with /dev/ to get the value to pass to ntfs-3g. You can use the option -ovolname to specify a name for the Finder to display. Example: mkdir /Volumes/ntfs sudo ntfs-3g /dev/disk1s1 /Volumes/ntfs -ovolname="Windows Disk" Be sure to substitute your disk partition for /dev/disk1s1. Using a mount point of /Volumes/something allows better integration with the Finder. In this example, I'm using /Volumes/ntfs. To disconnect: umount /Volumes/ntfs or eject from the Finder. See ntfs-3g man page for more options.
