I used this solution, Write to NTFS-formated drives on Yosemite, but after system restart have strange bug with names for NTFS drives - every next reboot I see new number right after volume's name. E.g. at first it was DISTRIB, after next reboot - DISTRIB 1, next time DISTRIB 2 and...

Any ideas?

Finally I solved it by updating to 3.1.0 (thanx guys) and deleting alias icons. After system reboot my volumes got their original names


This duplicating of volume names appears to be a known issue in FUSE for OS X that has been fixed in more recent versions.


The Homebrew cask system is still installing 2.x versions but if you install one of the pre-release 3.x versions from GitHub the issue is reported to have been fixed.

  • Still have this bug. Strange...

  • The new version might fix the problem but not be smart enough to tidy up. Try unmounting/unplugging the NTFS drive then deleting the extra folders under /Volumes, reboot and try plugging the drive in again. Commented Jan 19, 2016 at 14:19
  • Done it. But had no extra folders there. After reboot drives have pugged automatically and kept names as they were before unplugging and rebooting

  • I'm not clear, are you saying the problem is fixed or not? :) Is the name still incrementing after reboots? Commented Jan 19, 2016 at 20:46
  • Now I think it is ok, but I don't know how to reset volume name to first state - it is still named "DISTRIB 5". Do you know how to rename it (change mount point name) to "DISTRIB"?
