boxcryptor classic on osx el capitan
- So I have to agree with everyone's posts above; given that the only thing needed to support Boxcryptor Classic in 10.11 is a symlink, I think it is BS that they are using this to force people to a different product. It would be one thing is Apple switched the FS layer, but they did not, so there is no technical reason not to support it.
- I understand the proposed advantages to Boxcryptor, but I use Boxcryptor Classic precisely since it has encFS support. As such, it's the only package I've found that lets me sync encrypted stuff between Mac, Windows and Linux easily.
- Anyway, since they refuse to support it, an even easier way to have full support in El Capitain is:
- 1. Download an older version of Boxcryptor Classic. I used 1.5.409.246 (https://www.boxcryptor.com/download/Boxcryptor_Classic_v1.5.409.246_Installer.dmg).
- 2. Install the application and open it once (you need to open it before modifying so Gatekeeper doesn't compain to you).
- 3. Close out Boxcryptor Classic
- 4. Open Terminal.
- 5. Run the following command: ln -s /Applications/Boxcryptor\ Classic.app/Contents/MacOS/Filesystems/bccfs.fs/Contents/Extensions/10.9 /Applications/Boxcryptor\ Classic.app/Contents/MacOS/Filesystems/bccfs.fs/Contents/Extensions/10.11 && ln -s /Applications/Boxcryptor\ Classic.app/Contents/Resources/bccfs.fs/Contents/Extensions/10.9 /Applications/Boxcryptor\ Classic.app/Contents/Resources/bccfs.fs/Contents/Extensions/10.11
- 6. Enjoy!
- 7. If Gatekeeper gives you a message saying Boxcryptor Classic is corrupted, open System Preferences -> Security & Privacy and switch "Allow apps downloaded from" to "Anywhere". Open the app, then switch the setting back.
- That's all you need to do.
