Paragon ExtFS for Mac 10 is a low-level file system driver which was specially developed to bridge file system incompatibility between Linux and Mac. ExtFS for Mac provides full read/write access to ExtFS formatted drives under OS X.Based on Paragon UFSD (Universal File System Driver) technology, this driver provides fast and transparent access to Ext2/3/4FS partitions as if it were part of the native Mac operating system environment, thus achieving an unprecedented high level of performance (similar to HFS+). Mac OS X programs can process these Ext2/3/4FS partitions without any restrictions and can browse contents, read and modify files, copy and create new files and folders, etc.
The latest Ext4 features support
The majority of Ext4, the latest file system format of Linux, features are now supported: 64bit, dir_index, extent, extra_isize, ext_attr, flex_bg, has_journal etc
Mounting time reduced
ExtFS for Mac 10 mounts Linux volumes up to 4 times faster, compared to ExtFS for Mac 9!
Large volumes support
ExtFS for Mac 10 can quiсkly mount even large (> 2TB) volumes.
Improved performance and stability
The driver now works much faster even in case the Linux volume is short of free space. It also shows a doubled transfer speed of a large amount of smaller files and increased rate of random read/write operations.
Improved User Interface
The 10th version of Paragon ExtFS for Mac driver got an updated clear user-friendly interface. A new Preference Pane available in OS X System Settings helps to easily and quickly find required features, as well as overview all mounted volumes.
Improved console utilities
Integrated check and format Linux volumes utilities became more stable and faster.
