Paragon NTFS for Mac 15 ($20) is a document gadget driver that allows Mac OS X Yosemite and later (including macOS Sierra) to examine and write to tough drives, strong-country storage devices, and USB thumb drives formatted for Windows structures.

In the preceding NTFS for Mac 14, formatting equipment was in brief exiled to System Preferences after years of working immediately inside Apple’s Disk Utility. I’m glad to record model 15 restores the capability to layout NTFS drives alongside the standard Mac OS Extended, exFAT, and FAT alternatives, but the software now works as a standalone utility as properly.

And what an excellent app its miles! The person interface is tastefully designed, with buttons for mounting, unmounting, verifying, or erasing the chosen volume.

Bottom line

Paragon NTFS for Mac 15 is a top notch improve to a wonderful cross-platform application that’s easily really worth the cash, especially if you own the preceding version 14, in which case this one’s loose.
