The Largest Selection of Cross-platform Tools for Users of Incompatible Consumer
on Android, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
FREIBURG, Germany, 26 September 2013 –
Paragon Software Group (PSG), the cross-platform technology leader in mobile device
and embedded system solutions, announces the launch of a
portal hosting a comprehensive selection of essential
free or inexpensive tools for users of multiple devices seeking to solve incompatibility issues on
Users of PCs, smartphones, audio and video equipment, TV sets, DVD players, digital cameras, and
camcorders increasingly need to interchange data content between various incompatible systems. To
solve the interoperability issue, Paragon Software has developed eight essential tools (seven
drivers and a converter) to guarantee full high-performance read/write access to volumes of the
most popular file systems (NTFS, HFS+, Ext2/Ext3/Ext4, etc.) under various platforms (Android,
Windows, Mac, Linux, etc.) where these file systems normally are not supported.
Paragon Software’s cross-platform tools are
based on the company’s exclusive
Universal File System Driver (UFSD) technology and enable any
device to communicate and share files regardless of its operating system. Beyond access, the tools
provide the highest data throughput speeds possible — equivalent to, or exceeding, native
In an engaging, interactive way, the new portal invites visitors to pick two platforms. The
portal then suggests the right software to solve the incompatibility issue and gives the user an
opportunity to download it.
NTFS for Mac OS X provides OS X with full read and write access to NTFS with the same
high speed as native HFS+ files.
HFS+ for Windows provides full read/write access to HFS/HFS+ partitions on any type of disks
(GPT, MBR) under Windows.
NTFS & HFS for Android enables users of Android-based smartphones, handheld media
players, digital video and other portable products to utilize storage media formatted by Mac OS and
Windows operating systems.
ExtFS for Windows is a free utility designed to eliminate barriers between Linux and Windows
operating systems by granting full read and write access to Linux-formatted partitions.
ExtFS for Mac OS X grants full read and write access to Ext2/3/4 partitions under Mac® OS
NTFS & HFS for Linux
Express grants full read and write access to Mac OS X and Windows partitions under all
latest Linux versions.
NTFS & HFS for Linux
Pro includes all functionality of the
Express edition and additional advanced utilities to create NTFS and HFS+ volumes.
NTFS-HFS Converteris a Windows utility that converts NTFS volumes to HFS+ volumes, or HFS+
volumes to NTFS. This utility consists of a wizard that lets the user select the desired volume for
conversion, gives the option to back it up, and then quickly performs the conversion.
The launch of the portal is the latest initiative in Paragon’s support of users of multiple
devices seeking the fastest and most reliable software to access data on the otherwise incompatible
