What's the Best Way to Write to an NTFS Partition on Mac?

I have two Mac Minis that I'm using as HTPCs. The Minis have external drives attached to them that have videos and music stored on them. Sometimes I'd like to be able transfer movies to an external drive, but the Minis can't write to my external drive as it's a NTFS partition, so what's the best way to get the Minis to be able to write to the NTFS partition? Thanks for any help.

If you don't want to reformat your NTFS drive, the best way to write to it on a Mac is by using third-party NTFS for Mac software. I use iBoysoft NTFS for Mac on my Intel MacBook Air running macOS Ventura.

It is by far the best I've seen. I tested several NTFS for Mac software that I found in this NTFS for Mac roundup and decided to continue with iBoysoft NTFS for Mac. It's super easy to use after being installed. I don't need to reopen the app after reconnecting my NTFS drive or rebooting my Mac. It just works seamlessly on my Mac, like a native macOS drive.

According to its official website, it supports macOS 13 Ventura ~ macOS 10.13 High Sierra on Intel-based, M1, and M2 Macs. BTW, it also enables you to write to a Boot Camp NTFS partition, unmount, and check & repair your NTFS drive.

You can test its free trial to see if it's what you need.
