    Can't paste folder or file on external drive?
    I connected my WD External HDD to my Macbook A1181 which runs Snow leopard. I created a folder on the desktop and I am trying to copy either the folder or it's files into the external drive, I can right-click and select COPY on the desktop folder but when i right-click in the external drive I am not getting the PASTE option? I also tried to drag and drop the folder but that is not working either? The external is NTFS formatted.

    Basically I am looking for a way to copy from the mac to the external but without having to lose the data I have on the external without having to reformat the external, is that possible?

    Oh, I had thought there might be a third party software I could try for this but if not then I will have to go that route, thanks!

    ? That's exactly what Paragon's software would be - direct link.
    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.
