New solution for delivering large video files on hard drives to PC-based clients

Tuxera is a Mac driver that allows you to write files of any size to a NTFS formatted PC hard drive. I've tested the demo version, and it works beautifully and completely transparently. See the link below to download the demo or to buy the full version (listed as $25 Euros without a dollar amount for some reason).

Until Tuxera, the 4Gb file size limitation made it impossible to copy files over 4Gb to a FAT32 formatted drive, and NTFS formatted drives could only be read on Macs, writing to them was not possible. So, the only workable solution for sending large files over 4Gb to clients with PCs, was sending them on drives formatted as Mac Extended, and making certain the clients purchased and installed the more expensive MacDrive app. from Not every client was will to go to that expense, so that could be a real deal breaker for many editors on Macs. Tuxera changes all that, and creates a seamless method for delivering files on hard drives to your PC-based clients.
