Please tell me if this is the wrong forum for this topic.
I have a situation where I need to write Mac files to an NTFS formatted external drive. Our school issues laptops to its students, giving the option of Dell or Mac. They are now upgrading everyone's computers we received 2 years ago, and generously gave everyone four days to back their files up and switch to the newer model of their chosen brand. I have a Dell with an external drive that I'm using, but I also have a friend with a Mac (OS Lion) who wants to back his data up on my drive. Reformatting to compatible file types are not an option, as I'm being helped over in virus support and have made a ddrescue image of my hard drive; it is physically failing. My short research and complete lack of Mac knowledge leads me to believe that anything after OS X will not work with NTFS-3G as a "translator." Is there a real solution to this, or should does he just need to get his own drive/find a Mac user with backup space available?
