Ok, so I have a 1TB Seagate external drive hooked up to my Mac Book Pro, Works great with MAC OSX but I had to install Tuxera for it to function to write with the Mac OS, initially it worked great with Windows 7, after a few weeks of using it exclusively with Mac OSX I booted into Windows 7 and it says I have to format it before I can use it, just to make sure the drive was still working I booted back into Mac OSX and it works fine so whats the deal?

I did, under Mac OSX it says that it is Tuxera NTFS, but n Windows 7 it just shows a blank file system, meaning that its just blank where is should say what file system it is

To be clear, are you able to access the files under Windows 7 or not? If not, you should try saving whatever you need from the 1TB, then format the drive under windows 7. Not sure though if Tuxera NTFS is compatible with OS X.

No, can not access files in Win 7, drive is unreadable. However when I boot into Mac OSX I can read and write to the drive fine, Any suggestions?
