I know there have been a couple of solutions posted before, (IIRC, one paid & one free) to enable writing to NTFS

I never paid that much attention before as I was new to mac and didn't need to do it... Now, I am comfortable with mac, and dont NEED to do it... But I would like to be able to do so...

What were / are the two best recommendations please?

Paragon NTFS, costs $19.95 but no problem with it for me, and I have only heard good things about it. Other free ones have had reports of data damage etc but you never know.

PARAGON Software Group - NTFS for Mac, communication channel between Mac OS X and Windows

Hope this helps

+1 for the free NTFS Mounter. Has always worked for me - never any corruption.
