Is it necessary to install any third-party packages while using CloudMounter?

The onsite version of CloudMounter supports the following versions of FUSE. The software will not use the other versions of FUSE in its work, despite being installed on the computer. Benefits of working with FUSE:

  1. You can get access to additional options of disks’ mounting (Mount cloud storage as local drive, manage the visibility of the disks to other users).
  2. In some cases, FUSE can affect the work of the disks and can fix the issue of disks being unmounted while working with them.

There is no need to install FUSE on your computer no matter the version of the app you are using unless you would like to use the additional options. However, if you face any difficulties with the work of a disk we would recommend you to do the following:

  • • If you are using the onsite version of CloudMounter:
    • ◦ to install FUSE and reproduce the issue again;
    • ◦ to uninstall FUSE and reproduce the issue again.
  • • If you are using Mac App Store edition of the software:
    • ◦ to install the onsite version of CloudMounter and FUSE;
    • ◦ reproduce the issue again.

Note: The Mac App Store version will not use FUSE regardless of its availability due to Apple’s sandboxing restrictions.
