Writing NTFS volumes with Snow Leopard

kategori: Programming
Walter Mantovani yazmış,

Snow Leopard (OSX 10.6.8 in my case) can read and write natively NTFS drive/partitions:

the easiest way I found is this

Rename the original /sbin/mount_ntfs tool:

sudo mv /sbin/mount_ntfs /sbin/mount_ntfs.orig

Create a script like this:

/sbin/mount_ntfs.orig -o rw "[email protected]"

save the script to /sbin/mount_ntfs

sudo chown root:wheel /sbin/mount_ntfs
sudo chmod 755 /sbin/mount_ntfs

Enjoy R/W access to NTFS volumes...

In case you don't like it

sudo mv /sbin/mount_ntfs.orig /sbin/mount_ntfs

and everything is back to R/O.

thanks to iBlacky

EDIT: This procedure does not work with Lion OSX 10.7.x
