FREIBURG, Germany, December 21, 2016Paragon Software Group, the cross-platform technology leader in innovative mobile device and embedded system solutions, reports that Paragon UFSD (Universal File System Driver) Value Pack– a bundle of five essential cross-platform tools providing access to non-native file systems — has been installed by five percent of Paragon NTFS for Mac users, showing that every 20 macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards, demonstrating increasing market demand for cross-platform products. Previously available as licensing-based technology to consumer electronics manufacturers, in September, 2016 Paragon’s UFSD technology became available for the first time as a bundle pack targeted at individual users. Judging from installation data recorded during the first two months of availability, five percent of customers upgraded from NTFS for Mac 14 to UFSD Value Pack, a clear sign that five percent of macOS users work with at least three incompatible file system standards.


Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes NTFS for Mac, ExtFS for Mac, HFS+ for Windows, ExtFS for Windows, and NTFS-HFS Converter. The UFSD Value Pack has been developed to instantly solve compatibility issues for users working with multiple file systems. The Pack comes with a lifetime free upgrade guarantee for just $49.95 — a savings of nearly $100 compared to purchasing each tool separately. For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10, or HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for only $19.95.


“I use the UFSD Value Pack personally and professionally. Personally, I have dual-boot laptops and desktops, and need to transfer information between the two systems as I work on different tasks. Professionally, I use Paragon products to transfer information from older hard drives onto new equipment, or recover information from damaged or unusable machines,” says John Hall, UFSD Value Pack user. “Paragon provides a single source for all major file systems – NTFS, HFS, and Ext3.  Having a single solution is important, so I have a single installation or upgrade, one place to contact for any issues, and a consistent approach.”


Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes essential tools required for unprecedented high-performance read and write access to NTFS, HFS+, and ExtFS partitions from macOS or Windows-based systems, at the same time delivering lower CPU load and power consumption. With Paragon UFSD Value Pack installed, dual-boot users can easily write files to NTFS-formatted USB flash drives, SSDs, or traditional hard drives, and copy data to NAS-based storage from a macOS-based computer.


Paragon UFSD Value Pack includes:

  • Paragon NTFS for Mac ® 14: Full, ultra-fast read/write access to NTFS partitions under macOS.
  • Paragon ExtFS for Mac ® 10: Full read/write access to Ext2/3/4 partitions under macOS with data transfer rate comparable to native file system performance. The same driver also checks, repairs, creates, and formats Ext2/3/4 volumes.
  • Paragon HFS+ for Windows ® 11: The only solution with full access to HFS+ partitions on disks of any type (GPT, MBR), with higher transfer rates than native HFS file-system performance.
  • Paragon ExtFS for Windows ®: Fast and transparent access to Ext2/Ext3/Ext4 partitions under Windows; read and write support for LVM (Logical Volume Management).
  • Paragon NTFS-HFS Converter: Convert NTFS volumes to HFS+ and vice-versa, with a backup option.
  • Lifetime free upgrade guarantee: Free upgrades for all included tools delivered directly to the user’s personal MyParagon account, plus free online support.

Under licensing agreements, Paragon’s UFSD technology have already been successfully embedded into tens of millions devices worldwide by the industry’s major manufacturers such as Cisco, Dell, HP, Western Digital, ASUS, Seagate, Toshiba, Belkin, LG Electronics, Logitech, Buffalo, Netgear, Acer, EMC, Siemens, D-Link, Lenovo, and many others to provide non-native storage expandability. Fast and rock-solid read and write access to external storage via USB in embedded devices allows customers use standard USB HDDs and flash-drives formatted under Windows (NTFS) or macOS X (HFS+) without the need to reformat them. UFSD can be integrated into embedded devices to access the exFAT file system, which is required for SD XC support (SD Cards exceeding 32GB) following the SD Alliance storage standards. Easily customizable, Paragon’s technology makes external storage in embedded devices cross-compatible like never before, opening multiple options to users. For example, in contrast to the open source FUSE/NTFS3G-based file system drivers, Paragon UFSD™ NTFS driver is implemented at the kernel-level, resulting in a significantly improved read/write performance.



Paragon UFSD Value Pack is available for $49.95 and can be downloaded from A lifetime free upgrade guarantee for four key bundled products is included.

For existing Paragon NTFS for Mac 14, ExtFS for Mac 10 and HFS+ for Windows 11 customers, the UFSD Value Pack is available for just $19.95. For purchasers of Paragon NTFS for Mac 12, the UFSD Value Pack is available for $24.95.
