macOS Big Sur is the latest version of the world's most advanced desktop operating system.

Like macOS Catalina, macOS Big Sur still provides a limited support for NTFS drives - By default, you can only read the files on NTFS drive, but you cannot write, edit or delete files on NTFS drive from your Mac. So how to write to NTFS drive in macOS Big Sur?

Solution 1: Enable NTFS drive write support on macOS Big Sur with Terminal

  1. Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software supports ALL the versions of NTFS (from Windows NT 3.1 to Windows 10). Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Paragon Software is able to get access to compressed files and folders, it has no problems with sparse files and enables all the needed operations with files and folders with security permissions.
  2. Tuxera NTFS is based on NTFS-3G, but with lots of their own proprietary performance and quality enhancements, and a very beautiful GUI, ease of use and a powerful built-in disk manager for checking/repairing NTFS disk errors via Mac (going to Windows to do 'chkdsk /F' is no longer needed).
  3. From Tuxera vs Paragon comparison table, Paragon NTFS is revealed to be the best NTFS software compatible to all OS X version including the new MacOS Sierra. It effectively makes Mac users able to fully either read or write to NTFS Partitions mounted by USBs or External Hard Drives formatted to NTFS file system.

Writing to NTFS drive with Terminal is totally FREE and works under all macOS versions, including macOS Big Sur.

By typing some commands at Mac Terminal, you can change the default setting to enable NTFS write support. But actually, this method is not as easy as it seems and is not recommended.

For common users, changing setting by Mac Terminal is too complex. To use Mac terminal, you must have a good knowledge of command lines, otherwise you are very possible to type wrong commands since you don't know what those commands mean at all. If you type wrong commands, it may cause unexpected harms to your Mac and data inside.
