Read and write NTFS on your Mac

As you know, Google allows its employees to use 20% of their time in the development of personal projects (luckily some have). Well, Amit Singh decided to use his quota to port the “FUSE” file system to Mac OS X: http: //fuse.sourceforge.net/ (File System in User Space), an open source project originating from Linux and FreeBSD.

With MacFUSE we can access the information of all those partitions not supported by Mac OS X itself, including sshfs, ntfs-3g (NTFS reading and writing), ftpfs (FTP reading and writing), wdfs (WebDAV), cryptofs , encfs, bindfs, unionfs, beaglefs …

Of course, until further notice the process is not exactly simple but tutorials “like this” are beginning to circulate: http: //www.lifehack.org/articles/lifehack/how-to-read-and-write-ntfs-windows -partition-on-mac-os-x.html with which to begin to know part of its potential.
