Tuxera NTFS is an NTFS for Mac tool that is used to help you mount NTFS drives on Mac in read-write mode.
What is NTFS for Mac? By default, macOS only supports reading to Microsoft NTFS hard drives. If you want to write to an NTFS disk on Mac, you have two ways. One is to run command lines in the Mac Terminal to temporarily enable macOS to write to NTFS drives. This way is dangerous as it may make your Mac crash. The other way is to use the professional NTFS for Mac program.
Although Tuxera NTFS for Mac claims to mount NTFS drives on Mac seamlessly, it has some drawbacks. It can't mount and access BitLocker-encrypted NTFS drives on Mac. Also, it mounts NTFS drives in read-write mode on Mac with a relatively slow data transfer speed.
