NTFS support on a Mac

NTFS support on a Mac

MajorHavoc
Helpful | Level 7

Dropbox backup of an NTFS drive attached to a Mac,  The Mac can read files on the drive by default, or with an inexpensive driver (like from Paragon Software) can read and write to NTFS drives. I migrated my media machine from Windows to Mac, but my 12 TB media disk is NTFS. Using Paragons driver, It works just fine with Logitech Media server as well as Plex. But Dropbox will not back up or sync files on this disc. Please add NTFS file support to Dropbox for Mac. Community, please vote.

I am not sure it is a bug, but more like a choice to not support NTFS file systems on the Mac. Even though it is read only supported natively. What I do not understand is why they chose to not support it?
