Installing Yosemite broke my install with their stricter rules on code-signed kernal extensions for security reasons. To fix it, you need to run the following 3 commands in terminal before installing/reinstalling: 1) sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1" 2) sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel 3) sudo kextcache -system-caches after the first command you will need to enter your password because of 'sudo' (super user do) this disables the security check. the other 2 commands just clear your cache of any old versions of this kernel extension to give you a fresh slate. After you install/reinstall you'll restart and things seem to be working. I suspect that this will be broken in the next update because this uses the /System/ folder which apple will be phasing out 3d party use of that folder.
I've tried to unistall this app... I tried to used the file 'uninstall' but nothing happened. There is nothing on this folder /System/Library/Extensions/ related to ntfs-free anymore. And I still get the error message after connecting my external HD. How can we really uninstall this app ?! Is there another file we should delete ? Has this app deleted any file which it wasn't supposed to ? If someone succeed in unistalling, please let us know !!
Installed NTFS-free ver. 10.8.2 on Mavericks. If one NTFS partition is mounted than everything is OK. But when two or more NTFS partitions are mounted (e.g. NTFS partition of internal disk and external NTFS disk, or two NTFS partitions on internal disk) then only administrator users on windows machines has write access to files or folders that were written on Mac machine. In such case file permissions has not full access for Everybody but only Administrator has full access. I haven't checked if this is issue only in Mavericks or also in previous versions of OS X. Can maintainers check this and remove bug as driver is not usable with two or more active NTFS partitions (e.g. at dual boot case). Regards.
It works fine and fast on OSX Mavericks (running on a 2011 MBP). With that said, I can't really recommend this to the "average joe" because of a single reason: no source. It's actually ironic that this project is hosted on sourceforge but there is no source code to be seen for the project. If their code is in fact derived from Linux drivers, then they are obligated by the GPL license to release the code. To make matters worse, the maintainers also left closed the support channels / discussion forums / whatever, which would be their first line of contact with users - the fact that I'm having to make all these points in a review is a telltale sign that this whole thing is fishy. I'll be more than glad to retract my review if things change, though.
