NTFS write support on Mac OS X 10.8.2

NTFS write support for 1TB external drive is tested and following procedure worked for me.

OS X version used: 10.8.2

1. Install OSXFUSE 2.5.4 from
Select MacFuse compatibility layer by selecting customize installation option.

2. Install fuse_wait-1.1.pkg from

3. Install NTFS-3G for Mac OS X 2010.5.22 support from

Warning: Installation order should not changed and use it at your own risk. I am not a Mac OS X Expert.

I tried reading/writing big files of size 4+ GB. It worked well for me. All the best.
