  1. Step 6: Well, finally here is how to Create a symlink for mount_ntfs

    Link NTFS-3G to the system location. In a Terminal prompt:

    sudo mv /sbin/mount_ntfs /sbin/mount_ntfs.original
    sudo ln -s /usr/local/sbin/mount_ntfs /sbin/mount_ntfs

    *i have successfully done upto step 5 but in the last step when i wrote that command it says
    in terminal it says :-
    -> mv: rename /sbin/mount_ntfs to /sbin/mount_ntfs.original: Operation not permitted
    -> ln: /sbin/mount_ntfs: Operation not permitted

    note:- i have os x el capitan version 10.11.2 installed in my macbook pro 2015
