Mount Boot Camp in Read/Write Mode

Winclone 6 makes mounting a Windows volume in Read/Write mode easy.  Normally, macOS mounts Windows volumes (NTFS) as Read-Only.  If you want to copy some files to the NTFS filesystem prior to booting into Windows, you can mount the Boot Camp partition as Read/Write.

To mount as Read/Write, simply select the Boot Camp partition in Sources:

and click the Mount Read/Write button in the Tool Bar.  

If this is the first time that you are mounting a volume as Read/Write, you will be prompted to install Mac Fuse.  Mac Fuse is a system that allows macOS to mount non-native filesystems easily.  See this article for more information.

Winclone 6 will unmount the volume and then remount it:

You can now create folders and add files to the Boot Camp partition since it is now writable:

If you want to remount the Boot Camp partition as Read Only, unmount and remount it is Disk Utility (located in the Utilities folder).
