    My MBP has a SSD for the main disk (Normal OSX FS) and then I have added a 1TB HDD into the Optical bay and formatted it as NTFS.
    Using Paragon NTFS 14 I can read and write to this fine.
    However when saving files from Chrome directly to a folder on the NTFS drive the files do not show up.
    I can open the file if I double click on it in the Chrome status bar.
    If I search for it in the search box in Finder it also is found OK.
    It just refuses to be listed when I looked at the folder directly on the NTFS drive.
    Any ideas what's going on?

    After some investigation the files are being saved with the hidden flag set.
    chflags nohidden *.* makes them visible in Finder now.
    But why are they being saved as hidden in the first place?
