    Question NTFS app did things wrong with my mac
    Greetings ,,
    I've recently downloaded and installed an app that allows me to write on
    NTFS external hard disc from here :
    Download NTFS-3G for Mac - Read-write NTFS filesystem driver. MacUpdate.com
    but I didn't like it so I've deleted it with Appzapper
    now when I search in spotlight , I don't find the NTFS app
    but the problem is that when I connect the external hard disk to the mac , this messege comes on :
    http://www7.0zz0.com/2010/12/23/15/499597289.jpg
    when I click Abort , I don't see an icon for the external hard disk on my desktop
    when I click Force , I see the icon on my desktop but it adds this file into my external hard disk :
    http://www6.0zz0.com/2010/12/23/18/686202816.jpg
    and inside it :
    http://www6.0zz0.com/2010/12/23/18/689296224.jpg
    and inside it :
    http://www6.0zz0.com/2010/12/23/18/281410779.jpg
    now when I delete the first file that messege appears when I connect the external hard disk
    but when I don't delete it the messege doesn't appear
    now how can I solve the problem ?? I want it like I've never installed that
    app , please Helpppp , the mac is new and i don't want problems in it .

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    I would install it again, and then go to the preference pane, and disable it.

    Perhaps see the developer's site if that doesn't work NTFS-3G for Mac OS X

    Unfortunately, MacFUSE and NTFS-3G have been and remain pretty flaky. I didn't think so at first, but after having experimented with them through many different versions, I have come to the conclusion that the reliability of my data is more important than the $30 it costs to get a professionally developed solution that is reliable.

    I recommend removing MacFUSE and NTFS-3G completely and replace it with Paragon's NTFS for Mac. Well worth the money (especially now that it makes R/W access to the Mac partitions from Windows possible).
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Ditto
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Here are the uninstall instructions from the PDF
    hem.bredband.net/catacombae/ntfs-3g/macntfs-3g_userguide.pdf

    NTFS-3G can be easily uninstalled using the Uninstall NTFS-3G... button in the NTFS-3G preference pane, which should be available in System Preferences once you have installed the package. See section 4 for a description of the other features in the preference pane.
    If this should fail for some reason, an uninstall script exists at the following location: /System/Library/Filesystems/ntfs-3g.fs/Support/uninstall-ntfs-3g.sh

    Completely agree. And since the Paragon utility/driver is currently selling for $19.95, it's a great bargain.
