What would you like to do?
i. Mount NTFS external drive on your Mac and find it's name
diskutil list
ii. Launch Terminal and enter the following command
sudo nano /etc/fstab
iii. Now add new code to nano and replace NAME with the NTFS drive’s name
LABEL=NAME none ntfs rw, auto, nobrowse
iv. Save changes and restart terminal. Unmount the connected NTFS drive and again plug it into your Mac to access the files on the drive with write operations.
Note: If your DRIVE_NAME is made up of two words separated with a space, for example, “NO NAME”, you have to change the space to “\040”. For example, “NO\040NAME”
