Why can't I add files to my Toshiba external hard drive?
I plug in my 1.5 TB Toshiba external hard drive on a Mac, and I can view my files and copy & paste them to my desktop. But I cannot add any files to the hard drive. A "cancellation" sign appears when I try to drag and drop any type of file. I have over 1 TB of files on the drive with 500 GB of free space left. I would transfer files to another device then attempt reformatting it, but I don't have the time or money to do this. Any help or suggestions? Thanks.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
You can buy Tuxera NTFS and download onto your Mac. there is a 14 day trial free period and then you can buy it for £15. Then can instantly download on to hard rive from Mac. Much easier than doing it yourself.
How do you use Tuxera NTFS. There are no instructions with it. I have a MacBook Pro.
The external hard drive has to be empty in order to transfer files from the Macbook.It worked for me.

My problem is that while the drive shows as present, its "search" function stopped working. I know the item is in it but it won't give it up.

You might not have the hard drive programmed the right way, you need to go in settings, find "disk utility" and click on the toshiba hard drive. then you go to "erase" and make sure nothing is in your hard drive beforehand and select "exFAT" or "mac os extended (journaled)" and press erase.
