    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.
