Thx Barney-15E:


 


I upgraded from the previous release as I keep updates fairly close to the latest.


The drives are both NTFS because of the PC where they originated. I wasn't careful enough to reformat it then but it has worked without problems for nearly 3 years in read, write and delete operations. I never used thrid party windows drivers.


While there is a trick to make the OS write (albeit haphazardly) to NTFS, I would imagine you would remember using it.

There is no other native writing ability in OS X/macOS. You would have either ran the terminal commands to enable mounting the volumes as writeable (it also has to be done on a per-drive basis, so you would have had to do it with every drive), or you installed the software that came with one of the drives.

That software would have included a crippled version of either Tuxera or Paragon.

It is quite common that those drivers will fail to work correctly with a new OS.
