Question: Greetings

I have recently bought a new;

4.2 GHz Intel Core i7 Quad-Core


High Sierra OS 10.13.1

My previous was a Win 7 pc, which I had 4 ext HDD, 1 2TB, and 3 TB, of which I have only gotten one to be recognized... the 2TB!!!

My problems are;

1- I can't get permission to write to the drive, I can read, but not write!!!

2- From time to time I have to remount this 2 TB HDD on the OS 10.13.1

iMac with Retina 5K display, iOS 10.3.1

macOS can not natively write to NTFS formatted drives. I'm guessing they are NTFS, though there is no reason it shouldn't be able to mount the 3TB unless the partition table was non-standard.
