If something doesn’t seem to work properly in Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Tuxera, or you want to find out what happens when you attach a Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Tuxera volume for troubleshooting purposes, you can enable debug logging to get more information.
Navigate to System Preferences -> Microsoft NTFS by Tuxera -> General tab
Check the box “Enable debug logging” to turn on extended logging.
When debug logging is enabled, the utility that helps Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Tuxera to mount, format, and probe volumes (and do a lot of other important things) writes extensive debug logging information to log files.
Normally, the script writes onto the log file “/Library/Logs/tuxera_ntfs_util.log” (at the root of the volume), but in case it doesn’t have sufficient access (if it isn’t run with admin privileges) it falls back to “~/Library/Logs/tuxera_ntfs_util.log” in your home directory.
Note: The Microsoft NTFS for Mac by Tuxera utility script always tries to log errors, regardless of the setting of this preference value. Debug logging provides extremely fine-grained logging suitable for bug reports.
This option is off by default.
