NTFS read-write on Mac

I had no clue it was this complicated when i thought of copying some files on to a portable hard drive from a Mac, for a colleague. As it turned out, Mac has ntfs support but default behavior is to only allow read-only access.

After searching around for a good while finally came across this nice tool called "Mounty for NTFS" which did the trick for me. I'd highly recommend to check it out if you happen to run in to the same problem and not so familiar with Mac way of things -like me.

Google will easily find it for you, but here is a link to the site.
