Upgrading to a new macFUSE version

To upgrade to a new macFUSE version, go to:

System Preferences → macFUSE → Check for updates → Click on update

If you have an old macFUSE version already running on your machine and are upgrading to a new macFUSE version, you may encounter the following error:

/Library/Filesystems/macfuse.fs/Contents/Resources/load_macfuse' failed to load macfuse kernel module

To solve this, you can either restart your machine or run the following steps to manually switch to the new macFUSE version.

  1. Unmount all your FUSE mounts

  2. Unload the old macFUSE

    $ sudo kextunload -b com.github.macfuse.filesystems.macfuse

  3. You can now remount your FUSE filesystems
