Seagate will include an NTFS driver for Mac OS X on all GoFlex portable and desktop offerings, enabling storage and access of files from both Windows and Mac computers. The NTFS driver is simply installed once on a Mac computer, and allows access and storage of files on a Windows-formatted drive. This is a novel feature, that we haven't seen in any of the drives before these.
