Paragon NTFS-HFS Converter has several limitations:

  • No support for Windows Dynamic and OS X APM disks
  • No support for Windows system volumes, MSR volumes, super-floppy (without MBR) volumes

The following NTFS specific attributes will be lost during NTFS to HFS+ conversion, as they are not supported by HFS+:

  • Alternate data file streams will be lost. Streams usually do not contain user data, only specific service information
  • ACL will be lost. Information about users’ permissions to access file system objects (files and folders) will be lost. All objects become available for everyone
  • Windows-specific service information about object mount points will be lost (this usually doesn’ t connect to user data)
  • Encrypted files content will be lost

The following HFS+ specific attributes will be lost during HFS+ to NTFS conversion, as they are not supported by NTFS:

  • Folders which are really only links to an object(s) will be converted into independent object(s). This can occupy additional space on a volume
  • UNIX-specific service information about object mount points will be lost (this usually doesn’t connect to user data)
  • UNIX-specific information about users, groups and their access rights will be lost. All objects become available for everyone
  • Objects (files and folders) with same names (symbolically), but typed in various registers will be partly lost – only one of duplicated objects will be saved (only one random object from the following will be saved: “AA”, “Aa”, “aa”)
  • Object (files and folders) names containing following symbols *?/:<>|"\ will be changed
