What's the best software for NTFS drives on Mac that you have used?

I am using a 1TB WD external hard drive on MacBook Air running Mojave. I have used many NTFS for Mac software such as Paragon, and Tuxera but I can not access my drive properly now. Which is the best software for Mac to read/write NTFS drives without damaging them?

I've been using iBoysoft NTFS for Mac without a hiccup for ages. I tried several NTFS for Mac apps, including those you mentioned previously, but ultimately settled on iBoysoft. That's because it requires no attention after it's installed. It automatically mounts my NTFS drive once it's connected and allows me to read and write to it like any native drive formatted for macOS. 

The only little inconvenience using this software presents is the installation process, which requires me to enable system extensions and reboot my Mac. However, it appears to be a required step for most NTFS for Mac tools, as I must do the same when installing Paragon.

In any case, you can give iBoysoft NTFS for Mac a shot. It now works on Intel-based and Apple Silicon Macs running macOS 13 Ventura ~ macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

You can also use this NTFS driver to write to the Boot Camp NTFS partition on Mac, as well as unmount and repair your NTFS drives.
