Introduced back in 2005 by Intel to lift restrictions of the old MBR (Master Boot Record) and PC BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) is now a standard for all new computers.
Despite all UEFI advantages over the traditional tandem of BIOS+MBR, it is limited to support FAT32 (File Allocation Table), an outdated file system in every regard, which doesn't even allow files over 4 gigabytes. In an attempt to tackle this problem, motherboard manufactures start implementing read-only NTFS support into their UEFI firmwares. Obviously, it is not enough.
Paragon Software offers a complete solution. Based on the industry-proven cross-platform Universal File System Drivers library that has been proved to be a success on billions of devices around the world (phones, tablets, routers, NAS, cameras etc.), UFSD for UEFI opens transparent full read/write support of Windows-native NTFS, Linux-native ExtFS and other files systems in the UEFI pre-boot environment.
UFSD drivers for UEFI are working through the "simple file system protocol", allowing software developers familiar with the UEFI system calls, utilize the same APIs to access NTFS and ExtFS volumes as they do for FAT32. This lets developers focus on workflows and usability of their programs rather than worrying about low-level storage functions.
