Following up on last month’s Release Candidate preview version, Paragon Software Group has taken the wraps off the release version of NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0, the latest version of its Mac driver to read & write to Windows disks.
But Paragon’s driver doesn’t stop there -- NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0 has been tested to read and write around 90MB per second, achieving the speed of native HFS+ drivers and making it hands-down the fastest NTFS driver available. The software also includes a read-only version of HFS for Windows, which allows Windows users to access Mac HFS+ formatted disks as well.
“We are very excited to offer this new software to our fast growing NTFS for Mac OS X user base,” said Tom Fedro, the head of the American division of Paragon Software Group in a press release. “Paragon NTFS for Mac 8 is the only solution on the market based on file-system drivers, which makes it unique with regards to stability and performance. Paragon was the first to officially break down the communication barriers between Mac and Windows, and we remain committed to bringing users the newest features with NTFS for Mac OS X 8.0.”
