NTFS Drive under Mac OS X Yosemite

I have upgraded my MBP to Yosemite the first day it was released, running into the trouble of mounting my Seagate Backup Plus External Hard Disk. I have searched around for quite a while, and found out many others have similar problems after upgrading, such as this one one discussion.apple.com. Finally, I realised it is the NTFS problem. My Seagate Backup Plus is claimed to work on both Mac and Window. How can this happen? Finally, I found a solution on the Seagate official website. It has provided NTFS Driver for Mac OS. This is in fact a limited version of Paragon NTFS for use of Seagate Drive only. After installed it (reboot required), everything becomes fine.

Resources for NTFS on Mac

[1] NTFS Free. Its newest version is for OS X 10.8.2 (Yosemite is 10.10).

[2] Paragon NTFS. A very good commercial software.

[3] The Geeky Way. It does not need any other third party software. Currently, it seems not to work on Yosemite. Looking forward some updates will come soon to support it.
