Read & Write NTFS on macOS

Step 1: Go to Finder > Applications > Utilities > Terminal.

Step 2: Type “sudo nano /etc/fstab” into the Terminal to open the /etc/fstab file for editing nano text editor.

Step 3: Enter the following command line, which will enable the NTFS to write support.

LABEL=NAME none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse

Be sure to substitute NAME with your disk name without any space.

Step 4: Press Ctrl + O to save the file after you are done and then press Ctrl + X to close nano.

Tips: If you have multiple NTFS drives you want to write to, add a different line for each.

Step 5: Connect the NTFS drives into a Mac. If they are connected, re-plug them into the Mac.

Step 6: The NTFS drives won’t pop up automatically like drives normally do. You have to find the NTFS drives in Finder.

Note: If you want to undo the change, follow step 1 and step 2. Then delete the line “LABEL=NAME none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse” and save your change.

Once again, Apple NTFS write support is least tested and full of risks. Don’t do it unless you have to.
