    Speaking of eXFAT, Id suggest to stay away from that format. Reason is, I need to rebuild the directory of my 2tB exFat formatted HD every now and then especially whenever it is not properly ejected. And sometimes, the built-in Disk repair cannot fix it so i need to resort to using the Terminal to fix it.

    Not sure if this is is still true/applicable, but I read somewhere before thay you should format your exFAT drive on a Windows Machine, instead of on a Mac, to avoid any issues.

    If you have a Seagate drive, you can download a free version of Paragon NTFS for Mac from their website. This is the one that I currently use. Needless to say that this version will not work on non-Seagate drives...

    for everyone using Paragon:

    is the single seat license tied to the machine (like, you can't install it on a different machine)? i currently have a MBP which i plan to upgrade to a rMB really soon. if i purchase a license now and install it on my MBP, will i be able to use it on a new rMB?

    TIA.

    PS. i actually have the free one installed (because we have a bunch of seagate drives). i just need to manage stuff on my non-seagate drives.

    If I'm not mistaken, it's tied to the hard drive where it's installed. When I upgraded my hdd to ssd, they asked me to do this to re install paragon to my new ssd:

    You need to release your license.
    Please log in to MyParagon portal: https://my.paragon-software.com/
    Find your product in the list, then press "Release license". License status will be marked as "Not in use".
    Then try activating your product again.

    Hope his helps.

    btw, if you want to have a free legit copy of Paragon, you can just buy a seagate backup plus portable storage (with windows+mac on the box)
