It appears to me that your NTFS driver is having issues with your updated macOS, Catalina. It's a common problem that users encounter with every major upgrade.

Try the following tips to resolve the issue:

① Update your Mac if a new release is available.

② Check if the NTFS driver you're using is compatible with your updated macOS.

➤ If it is, reinstall your NTFS driver.

➤ If it has been recently updated, install the update on your Mac.

➤ If it doesn't support your macOS, consider switching to a different NTFS driver that's compatible with macOS Catalina or downgrading your Mac to a version that supports your driver.

If you want to experiment with different NTFS for Mac software, try iBoysoft NTFS for Mac. Its developers respond quickly to each major macOS release and always keep it updated. Until now, it supports the latest macOS 13 Ventura ~ macOS 10.13 High Sierra on Intel-based (T2 & non-T2), Apple Silicon (M1 & M2) Macs.
