HELSINKI, FINLAND--(Marketwire - May 3, 2012) - Tuxera Inc., the leading provider of interoperable file systems for Android, Linux, Mac and other platforms, today announced the release of Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2012. The installer and user interface have been localized to support twelve new languages including Arabic, Simplified and Traditional Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Turkish. Among many new features Tuxera NTFS for Mac now includes Tuxera's extensively developed NTFS verify and repair functionality fully integrated with Disk Utility. The release has been successfully tested and verified to work with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Mac OS X Lion.
Tuxera NTFS for Mac allows Mac OS X users read and write to external hard drives, USB memory sticks and other portable storages formatted with Microsoft Windows. Tuxera's software is a key tool for users who migrate from Windows to Mac and need to retrieve important data from Windows backup storages. Tuxera NTFS for Mac is also a very popular tool for designers and digital imaging professionals who work with large files across PCs and Macs. FAT is not a suitable option for portable file system storage because it limits file sizes to 4GB, and cloud storages have well known performance, security and availability concerns. Tuxera NTFS for Mac has been designed to support the users need for interoperability across their devices.
"Tuxera is committed to provide all Mac users worldwide an easy-to-use, lightning fast tool to access their Windows formatted hard drives and other storages. Tuxera NTFS for Mac installer and preference panel is now translated and localized into 13 languages," said Oscar Santolalla, Product Manager at Tuxera. "Mac keeps on growing in popularity and we are answering to the demand. Tuxera will verify and confirm Tuxera NTFS for Mac fully supports the next major OS X version Mountain Lion as soon as it is released."
