I just installed macOS High Sierra 10.13 on my Macbook Pro. After that, I connected my external hard drive to it but failed to edit files. My external hard drive is a NTFS file system. A few searches on Google seem to indicate that NTFS drive doesn't work with High Sierra, but I really need that. Does anyone know how to write NTFS drive in macOS High Sierra?
NTFS is developed by Microsoft and mainly used on Windows operating system. Apple's macOS or Mac OS X offers very limited support for NTFS drives. By default, macOS High Sierra 10.13 natively enables NTFS read support, but disables NTFS write support, so all we can do on Mac is to view/read files on the NTFS drive, but what should we do if sometimes it's necessary to copy, edit, delete or create files on NTFS drive?
