I am new to StackExchange so please pardon, if my request does not follow all best practices.

My dad uses Windows 10 on a MacBook pro 2015 via Bootcamp. His backup data is on an external NTFS hard drive. He is unable to access the data.

I am using NTFS with mac via paragon software. I.e. I am aware of the different file types.

What I am struggling with is that, since he is running bootcamp, he is probably not able to use a paragon NTFS driver for mac, is he?

Is this a know issue? Can somebody advise on how to approach this? Happy to buy a Software like the Paragon driver, if that solves the quest.

  • Windows 10 installed on a Mac does not need a third party driver in order to read an external NTFS hard drive. Can I assume this hard drive is connect through a USB port? – David Anderson Apr 28 '19 at 18:56
  • Turns out you are right. Misunderstanding btw. my dad and myself. Hard drive was not really 'empty'. He just did not see the files. Thank you. Case is closed. – mike95126 Apr 28 '19 at 19:30

Windows 10 installed on a Mac does not need a third party driver in order to read an external NTFS hard drive (question was based on wrong perception). Thank you to David Anderson
