NTFS on Mac OS X
This leads to issues for Mac users, especially when they dual-boot with Boot Camp or buy external hard disk drives. As mentioned, all versions of Mac OS X since 10.3 “Panther” have included read-only NTFS support, but those wanting full access had two options:
Paragon Software’s NTFS for Mac OS X is a full and supported read/write solution. Although available for purchase separately, many hard disk drives like the Seagate GoFlex now include a free copy of Paragon NTFS.
The open source NTFS-3G driver has also been ported to Mac OS X, allowing read/write support for free.
Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” adds a third alternative: Native read/write support for NTFS. But it’s not as simple as that. Although early betas enabled read/write support by default, it was limited once again to read-only in the final releases.
It is possible and even simple) to enable read/write support with the native Snow Leopard drivers, but this is definitely an “at your own risk” proposition. Users have reported kernel panics when using these methods, and although I have not heard of data corruption, it is possible as well.

What is exFAT?
ExFAT is a file system for your flash drive that’s compatible for both PC and Mac. ExFAT is supported by the following operating systems:
Mac OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.5 or greater)
OS X Lion
Windows XP SP2 or later (with an additional update for exFAT support)
Windows Vista SP1 or later
Disadvantages: As a relatively newer file system format, exFAT isn’t supported in older versions of Mac OS X (anything prior to 10.6.5) or anything older than Windows XP SP2. If you won’t be dealing with older Macs or PCs, this may not be a problem. Of greater issue is that most consumer electronics (cameras, camcorders, video game systems) don’t support exFAT, either. If you need to transfer files between your Mac and one of these non-PC devices, you’re almost certainly going to have to format your flash drive in FAT32 instead (via TUAW).
