How to Fully Remove Paragon NTFS for Mac

uninstall Paragon NTFS

Paragon NTFS is a volume management tool that claims to provides fast and transparent access to NTFS partitions as Mac OS X-native. Users will be able to browse contents, read and modify files, copy and create new files and folders, format and repair NTFS partitions in Mac OS. We don’t know for what reason you decide to uninstall Paragon NTFS, but if you encounter problems in uninstalling this software, we would like to share some useful information to help you out. Let’s get started.

Download Osx Uninstaller

Uninstalling most apps on Mac OS X is much easier than on Windows. But, a simple drag-to-delete move may not be able to remove all the components of the app you wanna trash. Most Mac apps are self-contained but some of them may leave hidden files around your system. To ensure a complete removal, you need to do more than that. We demonstrate two solutions below and you can choose the one you prefer to.

Solution 1: Uninstall Paragon NTFS Manually

Here are the instructions to perform a manual uninstall. Follow the steps in order.

Step 1. Deactivate Paragon NTFS

If Paragon NTFS is running, you should first quit this app and related process(es).

  • Head to Launchpad, find the Utilities folder, and click Activity Monitor there.
  • Select Paragon NTFS entry and click Quit Process icon in the upper left corner.
  • Click Quit in the pop-up dialog box to confirm. If you are told that Paragon NTFS cannot be quit by this way, then try the Force Quit option in the dialog again.

Step 2. Uninstall Paragon NTFS

There are several ways to uninstall Paragon NTFS. Try any of them as you like.

(1) Standard way of uninstalling 3rd party apps:

This is the most intuitive and commonly used way to remove apps on Mac. However, it might only remove the executive files instead of all the items the app created before. So after that, you are supposed to proceed with the next stage – deleting app leftovers.

(2) Alternative option (for apps installed from App Store):

  • Click Launchpad icon in the dock, and then type Paragon NTFS in the search box.
  • Hold on Paragon NTFS until it begins to wiggle and shows “X” in top left corner.
  • Click the “X” icon to start uninstall, and Paragon NTFS will be removed instantly.

(3)Uninstall Paragon NTFS from System Preferences

  • Head to System Preferences, and click on Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X.


  • Click Settings tab, and click Uninstall… button. You may need to click the lock icon at the lower-left corner and input your password to make this change take effect.


Step 3. Delete Paragon NTFS Remains

We notice that many users still encounter problems after Paragon NTFS has been uninstalled by the ways mentioned above. The reason lies most likely in the Paragon NTFS vestiges left behind on the system. Generally, the preferences settings, cache files, and supporting extensions for each app are stored in the Library section. If you don’t use Paragon NTFS any more, it is advised to clean out those files & folders.

  • Open the Finder, click the “Go” from the Menu Bar, select the entry:|Go to Folder… in the list and then enter the path of the Application Support folder: ~/Library

  • Search and delete the items pertaining to Paragon NTFS in the following locations:
    /Library/Application Support/

Tip: generally, each app has a .plist text file containing your preferences. Some applications may also install startup items, receipt, or extensions, which may be found in the /Library/StartupItems/, /Library/LaunchAgents/, /Library/LaunchDaemons/, /Library/Receipts/, and /Library/Extensions folders. The best quick way to track those files down is to do a Finder search using the application name or the developer name as the search term. If you are not sure whether a file belongs to Paragon NTFS, do a web search about Paragon NTFS components. Advanced users can utilize Terminal to list the contents of the directory in question, and then delete the offending items.

Step 4. Empty the Trash

After deleting Paragon NTFS and its components to the Trash, the last thing you need to do is to empty the Trash. Notice: the act of emptying the Trash is irrevocable, and everything in the Trash will be deleted immediately. Before emptying the Trash, please make sure you haven’t mistakenly delete anything there.

  • Right click on the Trash icon in the dock.
  • Choose Empty Trash and click OK in the pop-up dialog.

  • Alternatively, you can empty the Trash by choosing the Empty Trash under the Finder menu. In case you cannot empty the Trash, reboot your Mac and do it again.
  • If you change your mind about deleting the item before you choose Empty Trash, you can right click on the items in the Trash and choose Put Back option.
