I am using macOS Sierra 10.12.3
I'm new to Macs and just encountered the problem, that Macs don't open ntfs formatted external drives by default. Well, since I am not new to linux, I just added the following line to /etc/fstab:
UUID=xxx-xxx-xx none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
Unfortunatly that did not work. After I plugged in the drive. So I tried to mount it manually by:
That gave me the error message, that
none does not exist. So I created a folder
/Volumes/external and changed fstab to:
UUID=xxx-xxx-xx /Volumes/external ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
That worked! GREAT!
BUT as soon as I plugged out the drive, the folder was deleted automatically. And after a new plugin of the drive, it could not mount, because the folder was missing.
So my main question is: How can I configure write-enabled auto-mounting of NTFS drives?
