Is the bug fixed where free disk space isn't updated until after re-mounting the disk?

Please try out this latest build, which features a fix for this issue:

Does this build fix your problems with free diskspace updates?

I did a benchmark between ntfs-3g and tuxera ntfs and yes, it's really faster. Copying big files up to 150%

But i recognized a bug: if you copy a whole directory to a new place, tuxera doesn't create a new directory and just copies the files.

I did this in a shell: cp -r folder/ destination/
and there is no folder in destination/, just the files.

Is there a workaround?

That is not a bug, it's supposed to be that way if you invoke cp with "folder/" as source instead of just "folder".

I'm sorry, I may have misunderstood this… but why are you supplying the source tarball of a *commercial* product?
Don't I need to pay for Tuxera NTFS for Mac?

I'm using the free version NTFS-3G for Mac on my ancient Power Mac G3 (Jan. 1999, 350 MHz!) and I'm really satisfied. Thanks for all your work!

Mac User #330250:


The source tarball is for 'TUFS', our rebranded and integrated version of MacFUSE. This component is only a small part of the package and was always open source and (to some extent) free/libre software, so we are simply releasing our modifications.
