    Hi mac57,

    I have corrected the link. Thanks for the remark.

    Frankly speaking, I can't find the review made by Linux Format magazine.
    Could you please post a link?

    Wish you success when using Ext2FS for Windows. I believe you will be satisfied.

    Thanks,
    Anatoly.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    Have installed NTFS for Mac OS X and so far have only experimented.

    I have XP Pro set up with an NTFS partition via Bootcamp and use it primarily for... let's just say, files larger than 4GB.

    I am now able to browse my NTFS partition from within a Finder window and:
    1) delete/move files to the trash - one of the easiest deletions of the infamous index.dat file
    2) re-organise the XP file structure - move files/folders around on the partition
    3) download Win executables while in OS X and then move them to the NTFS partition
    4) have also moved files from my external HFS+ drive to the NTFS partition

    So far, all has worked as if it were an inherent ability within OS X with no interaction on my part other than installing the software. (Moved a 7GB file from my external HFS+ drive to the Bootcamp partition - and while I did not put a stopwatch on it - it seemed to be as fast as moving files between my HFS drives.)

    Had downloaded and tried MediaFour's MacDrive in XP. It also worked great - but due to it's price decided to find workarounds for the small bit of interaction I wanted to do between my NTFS and HFS local partitions on my MBP.

    Paragon's NTFS for Mac OS X - at a $20 price point, Paragon gets my $$ just for the convenience. For those only needing access between NTFS and HFS+ on their Mac, this looks like the way to go.

    And, except for those that need access to IE only sites, but just on occasion are wanting to download a Win .exe file, it can now be done while in OS X and just save or move the file to your XP partition. This would totally eliminate the need for using a browser from within windows. This in itself could end the practice of Spybot and AVG on your Bootcamped partition.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    Hi Anatoly, unfortunately, I can't post a link to the Linux Format review - I get the hard copy print version of the magazine and I simply read the article on paper - how archaic!

    Thanks for correcting the link to the performance article. I will have a browse through! Cheers.

    Dear Forum Visitors,

    Please let us know your feedback regarding this new software. We believe any software has bugs, especially a beta version. The release date is soon and we want to release software that will be a really useful tool for every Mac user.

    Thanks in advance,
    Anatoly.

    Anatoly - I've been using your product for about a week now and haven't encountered any problems whatsoever. I have primarily read and written to an NTFS-formatted external hard disk. I have yet to test it with another drive.

    My machine is a MacBook Pro, 2.0GHz Core Duo with 2GB of RAM and a 120GB HDD.

    Just d/l'ed it and will try it out.

    In case you dont know, Paragon is very well respected in the computer forensics industry. They have been around for a long time.

    Anatoly,

    I have read thru the other forum where you are testing and have not noticed nor been able to duplicate any of the issues being reported there on my MBP.

    For those interested in speed comparisons - Just completed a timed test to compare write speeds.
    Moving a 4.36GB .iso file from my external HFS+ via FW800:
    to MacIntosh HD: 3 min 00 sec
    to Bootcamp XP: 3 min 31 sec

    For me, that is very acceptable time for the convenience of inter-operability.

    While in OS X - have also experimented with moving files to the trash from the XP partition, booting back and forth and then restoring the files back into XP without incident.

    Folks, just as a side note, I have now purchased, D/L'd and installed Paragon's Ext2FS Everywhere product, which allows pretty much every vintage of Windows 9x and Windows XP/Vista to read/write the mainstream Linux file system ext2/3. I am pleased to report that it is working well. I haven't done any exhaustive testing yet, but I can read and write files, create and delete directories, get volume information and so on. A very good start. Nice job Paragon!

    Anatoly,

    Is your team also working on being able to write to HFS from within windows also or are you leaving that to MediaFour?

    I was having problems with saving files in my external Hitachi 40GB HD but after installing the Paragorn NTFS for Mac OS Beta and doing it again it went flawlessly. Great stuff ...

    BTW, I plan to get an IOMEGA 320 external HD and use it for my back up using SuperDuper. I have installed Paragorn NTFS for Mac OS beta in my MacBook. My question is this - do I have to format the IOMEGA HD to NTFS format? If so how? or do I just have to plug and play? I haven't done any formatting before so forgive my ignorance. Many thanks for the help. Cheers ...

    I haven't played around with the Paragon software yet but can't you just access a friend/work computer and format with NTFS on XP/Vista?

    EDIT:
    Haha, forget the resizePartition tool, it can only do FAT, not NTFS, my bad.
