Using ntfs-3g any BSD should be able to do that in the same way as it is done on Linux.

That article is more than a year old and describes how to apply a patch that fixes that problem. I would think that the FtreeBSD developers have incorporated that patch already into the main system.

Which version of BSD were you checking against? FreeBSD 9.2 should have full read/write support with ntfs-3g.

FreeBSD 10, because it has reworked FUSE support in 'base system' while previous FreeBSD versions (9/8/...) only used a addon FUSE module from ports.

Still, I have more serious problems about NTFS with BSDs!
Which one distro is nearest by UNIX and Support NTFS better than others?
SmartOS, OpenIndiana, Slackware?
Thanks for your Hints!

Slackware is Linux, not BSD.

SmartOS is based off OpenSolaris and is more for PXE and Network booting.

OpenIndiana is based off The Illumos Project which is a replacement kernel and OS core for OpenSolaris.

To be honest, just go with FreeBSD 9.2. It's technically the most stable and advanced of the current FreeBSD releases and ports FUSE works actually well. I have it working on my desktop without a hitch.

Make it 10-BETA3 or later, FreeBSD 9.x does not have FUSE integrated into the base system.

Also 10.x is a lot better suited to the desktop/workstation because of KMS/Radeon integration.
