NTFS can be read/written by your Toshiba running Windows, but is Read Only for your macOS by default. So, are you sure you need to format a drive in NTFS for both environments?

Or, do you mean you know the limits and do want to install a driver on macOS to enable write operation from Mac?

Please clarify. Thanks.
