NTFS for Mac


Microsoft NTFS is one of the most commonly used file systems of Windows. However, writing and editing files from a hard drive formatted to NTFS on a Mac computer is still a barrier.

EaseUS NTFS for Mac grants MacOS users access to an NTFS drive. With the support of this tool, MacOS users are able to mount/unmount NTFS drives on a Mac computer, as well as editing the files inside the drive.
