I've upgraded my MBP. For whatever reason I now have "read only" access to one of my external HDDs. It's currently in NTFS format. It's a Seagate drive, and it worked on my previous macbook pro with no problems. However there was free software provided from Seagate at the time of purchase as well, which I suppose included drivers that allowed me to have full access. I've searched the Internet quite extensively now, and am unable to find any software/drivers that will let me have complete access to my HDD now without paying. This kind of sucks! Does anyone know how to help? Ultimately, probably reformatting the drive to ExFat is the best thing to do it, but I have more than 900 GB of stuff I don't want to lose, and would prefer to have access to it to be able to delete / back up what I want first.
