Hi, I have a USB disk from my friend formatted with Windows NTFS. OS X is able to read it and copy data from it, but also I need copy some data from my Mac to this disk. Any solution or software?

There are some programs, that will help you with your problem, like Paragon NTFS for Mac, Tuxera NTFS for Mac, osxfuse etc.

Advanced Mac users also can try to enable experimental support for NTFS included in OS X:

1) Open Terminal and type > sudo nano /etc/fstab
2) type in nano text editor > LABEL="NameOfDrive" none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
3) Press Command+O to save the file and then press Command+X to close nano text editor
4) Unplug and reconnect the NTFS drive > navigate to the /Volumes folder with Finder (Go > Go to Folder and type /Volumes) and open your NTFS drive

If you have multiple NTFS drives you want to write to, add a different line for each other drive.
