Mac OS X may be an operating system without built-in support for writing to NTFS (the file system in Windows). For example, if you have installed Boot Camp and Windows on your Mac you have a partition to which you cannot write. You can copy files from your Boot Camp drive but not copy to it.

So what to do?

The solution is simple and free. You download MacFuse and MacNTFS-3G and install both. After that you may have to restart your Mac but you should be okay with using Disk Utility to dismount and mount the Boot Camp partition.
