How To Transfer Files From A Mac To A Seagate Hard Drive Used On Windows?

I have had my seagate hard drive with files on it which I downloaded from my Windows PC. Now I bought macbook air and also have some files that I need to transfer to my seagate, how do I do that WITHOUT losing my files I already have on my seagate hard drive? Thank you!

Since you use the Seagate hard drive on Windows, it's probably formatted as an NTFS file system. macOS doesn't support the NTFS file system fully, if you want to transfer files from an NTFS hard drive to a Mac, you'd better off using NTFS for Mac.

Once downloaded, iBoysoft NTFS for Mac mounts an NTFS Seagate hard drive in read-and-write mode automatically when it is connected to your Mac, allowing you to transfer, send, and copy files to the Seagate hard drive without a hitch! You can rest assured and utilize this handy NTFS hard drive mounter with ease!
