I just bought my first Mac which is a used 2018 Mac Mini with a Core i7 running Ventura 13.5.2. I plugged in an external hard drive which is formatted in NTFS; very strangely it is able to view some files on this drive but not all of them. I've been searching for this problem but haven't found anything like it.
I have verified on my Linux laptop that the files do indeed exist-- I can access them from this machine.
I'm not a Mac person so I don't really know what my options are or what makes sense to do. Any insight would be much appreciated. Thanks!
