Q: read write to a ntfs disk in snow leopard?
A: Use NTFS-3G
NTFS-3G for Mac OS X is a software project designed to bring NTFS read/write support to Mac OS X along with additional advanced features.

It is based on NTFS-3G, the leading open source NTFS driver that is ported into numerous platforms, but also includes other software projects to build a complete toolset for managing NTFS volumes.

NTFS-3G itself is included in hundreds of Linux distributions; for example Fedora, Mandriva, openSUSE and Ubuntu use NTFS-3G as the default NTFS driver. Development has been ongoing since 2006.

Version 2010.10.2:

  • Fixed filename encoding when standard functions are not available.
  • Fixed checking mounted device status on some non-Linux platforms.
  • Fixed mounting with SELinux context.
  • Fixed -n and –no-mtab mount option handling, needed by automount.
  • Improved consistency checks of POSIX ACLs.
  • NTFS-3G manual update.
  • Mac OS X 10.4 or later (the purely 64-bit kernel used by Xserves running Mac OS X 10.6 is not supported)
