Problem writing on NTFS external drive on OSX

When you format an external USB hard drive in Apple’s MAC OSX you may find that it is not possible to write on it. This is due to a permissions issue

I have found that a solution is to delete a file in your Mac to reset the permissions:

And there also seems to be another solution which is mentioned here, using the command line with diskutil:
