Fixes

  • Jungle Disk accounts with multiple macOS users that updated to 3.31.2 may have experienced an issue with “metadata” files being repeatedly duplicated in the root of a “shared” Network Drive. For accounts with users on both macOS and Windows, this issue may have produced filenames that exceeded the maximum length for a filename on Windows, which prevented any files from being displayed on Network Drives. This release fixes the metadata file duplications, and solves the display issue.

Improvements

  • This release includes some major structural improvements that dramatically impact the location and access of application files. We hit the highlights below, but recommend reading our blog post going into further detail if you have any custom scripts running on Jungle Disk application files or any machines with multiple users running backups
  • Network Drives are now connected using JungleFS, a FUSE-based system extension that allows us to overcome file-system bugs in High Sierra and make our application overall more resilient to OS updates. Users will be prompted to allow installation of this extension, which will show as published by “Jungle Disk, LLC.”
  • With the update to JungleFS, Local Drives will now be mounted to a new default location and will have user-level permissions, not system-level permissions. Any process or application without user permissions will not have access to the locally mounted drive.
  • Jungle Disk services now run with user-level permissions instead of system-level permissions. Because of the move to JungleFS, our application files must be in a user’s home directory rather than at the system level. When updating to this version, the app will migrate the files automatically. This may impact some automatic backups or sync folders if the user does not have permission to access the directory being backed up or synced.
  • We’ve updated our compiling and runtime processes to conform to requirements to get our application notarized by Apple. This ensures the native OS can protect against any malicious third-party modifications of the application, and prevents new installations from having to “allow” the app to run after download.

Fixes

  • Fixed a bug with sync database that attempted to change permissions on a file that doesn’t exist anymore.
  • Previously, users of Jungle Disk on macOS Mojave or later had to grant our application full disk access in order to back up any file in directories restricted by the OS. With this update, we will now prompt the user to grant access to specific directories that are part of a backup when it’s being configured or when a preexisting backup runs for the first time after updating
