Read & Write NTFS on OSX (for free)

I have and old HD in NTFS (windows) format, but I can not write in it using OSX.

So, to work with it again, I need to follow some steps (using a free option):

Install FUSE. Download the .dmg here:

Install Homebrew:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

Install ntfs-3g:

brew install ntfs-3g

Manually, you can mount NTFS. To do that, you need to create a space:

sudo mkdir /Volumes/NTFS

Then, list your disks:

diskutil list

You can see the “disk2s1” name of the NTFS. With that, unmount manually:

sudo umount /dev/disk2s1

And then mount it again in the NTFS folder:

sudo /usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g /dev/disk2s1 /Volumes/NTFS -olocal -oallow_other

Now, I can write on the NTFS HD:

You need to make this every time. But, If you need a permanent solution see here.
