Mounty: macOS NTFS R/W
|Mounty is a tiny tool that re-mounts write-protected NTFS volumes under Mac OS X 10.9+ in read-write mode. No additional drivers are installed, the app makes use of the build-in mechanisms already provided by Mac OSX Mavericks and above - no strings attached.
This app uses the gnu command mount to re-mount the partition in r/w mode. The system makes use of the diskutil/DiskImageMounter.app. NTFS disks mounted with this little app will not show in Finder's sidebar.
Download and Install Mounty
You can download Mounty here: http://enjoygineering.com/mounty/
Alternatively you can install it with Homebrew
brew cask install mounty
Never unplug Windoze media without ejecting. Aside from the possible catastrophic data loss you may experience the volume will be marked as dirty and this native driver does not mount "dirty" volumes in r/w.
Complete NTFS Drivers
brew cask install paragon-ntfs
brew cask install tuxera-ntfs
The free full fledge option is an open source driver called ntfs-3g, also available in Homebrew:
brew install ntfs-3g
You can mount disk in r/w mode without this app, by using the Terminal app.
First list all drives and locate the one you will re-mount.
Unmount the drive (replace X,Y properly):
diskutil unmount /dev/diskXsY
Create a directory where the disk will be mounted:
Re-mount the drive in read/write mode:
sudo mount -t ntfs -o rw,auto,nobrowse /dev/diskXsY ~/Desktop/Windoze
To eject the drive you can simply open the mount point folder and press
CMD + E. Or using the Terminal:
sudo umount ~/Desktop/Windoze
