Change Snow Leopard NTFS to be Read Write

Copy from Guide: Enable native NTFS Read/Write in Snow Leopard
Rename the original /sbin/mount_ntfs tool:

sudo mv /sbin/mount_ntfs /sbin/mount_ntfs.orig

Create a script like this:

/sbin/mount_ntfs.orig -o rw “$@“

save the script to /sbin/mount_ntfs

sudo chown root:wheel /sbin/mount_ntfs
sudo chmod 755 /sbin/mount_ntfs

Enjoy R/W access to NTFS volumes…

In case you don’t like it

sudo mv /sbin/mount_ntfs.orig /sbin/mount_ntfs

and everything is back to R/O.

There should be entries for server_host, tunnel_agent_host & tunnel_server_host that will need to be updated while PCP2 is shut down, which should handle it.

It works!
