How to write to NTFS on Mac OS

This is fully free and you dont need any purchased software to do this :)

Download this file and unzip it :- 
( I have downloaded all these softwares and kept together as a zip for easy downloading)



Install the following in order :- (Installation instructions for Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.4)

1.MacFuse-Tuxera-2.2.dmg
2.ntfs-3g-2010.10.2-macosx.dmg
3.fuse_wait-1.1.pkg - Expand and install
4.osxfuse-2.6.1 - Enable compatibility layer while installing.dmg 

(As the 4th file name says, during the installation choose the option "Enable Compatibility Layer")

Restart if required

This will help you in solving the following ntfs 3g error :-

dyld:library not loaded: / use/local/lib/libfuse2.bylib
referenced from : / use/local/bin/ntfs-3g
reason:image not found


Go to Disk Utility :- (Spotlight search on top right of your Mac -> Type "Disk Utility")

If you have BootCamp enabled :-
You can see Bootcamp on the left
Right click and say mount

Same way for other USB or hard drive that you have connected, it will show in disabled state.
Right click and say mount

and you are done.

Now you will be able to write to NTFS on Mac :)

I followed the instructions and it looked as if it works, I can save files to my NTFS drive, and then open them again, but when I restart the computer the files are gone! Any ideas?
thanks,
G
