Does Tresorit require any additional permissions to run Direct File Open or Tresorit Drive on Mac?
While Tresorit itself runs in the user space, kernel access is required for Tresorit Drive. We access the kernel via FUSE, a third-party application that is specifically designed for separating the application from the kernel.
Download and install FUSE following the walkthrough steps. Please note that you will need Admin rights on MacOS for this installation and to enable Direct file open and Tresorit Drive.
Access limits in Tresorit Drive
Some limits apply to using Tresorit Drive. Your uploads and downloads are limited to 50MB on both Windows and Mac. The folders you see in there are actually links to the synced folders on your computer, so you cannot cannot move or rename them here.
