    This NTFS read/write driver for Mac works, even on Mavericks! Reading and writing to windows files works fine, as well as linking folders within ~/ to ones on an NTFS drive. Just DO NOT CHANGE THE LOCATION OF YOUR HOME FOLDER TO AN NTFS DRIVE! Mac is designed to work with HFS+ file systems, and so many features (such as versioning and autosaving) are unavailable. Additionally, the system cannot lock files for editing. So while attempting to modify a file, the OS will report that the file has been edited externally, even if this is not the case (very annoying). Finally, the Mac OS does not respect some of the rules (incl. max. path length) of NTFS filesystems, so a volume may become "corrupt" to a windows system if used often on a Mac. All in all, this is a good driver, just don't rely on it too heavily. Editing a word doc on an external NTFS drive occasionally is fine, editing an Xcode project on one may yield problems.
