I am working on OSX with SolFS OS version. I've managed to get the file system opened and added a mounting point into an existing directory.

err = StorageOpen((PSolFSWideChar)lPath, &mStorage, sep, false, false);


err = StorageAddMountingPointEx(mStorage, (PSolFSWideChar)lMountPoint, 0, NULL);

The only trouble is that the mounted directory is read-only for some reason.

Can you give me suggestions as to where to start looking?

As a side note, the sample app, solfs_mount is able to mount the directory such that it is readable, using the same calls and arguments.

The developer will take a look at the issue later today. Meanwhile you say that solfs_mount creates "readable" directory - did you mean "writable"? If yes, then the simplest way is to find the difference between the sample and your code or try to replicate the sample as close as possible in your code.

Sincerely yours

Could you please tell me the version of OS and FUSE which are used, specify please all the attributes of mounting point directory, output of ls -l and xattr commands will be useful.

Hey Alexander,

I'm using osxfuse-2.6.0 and solfsdrv_macos 1.5.16.

I'm mounting to ~/Desktop/test with both my own application and solfs_mount.

The command line for solfs_mount is:
./solfs_mount -c -d -l CITest -ps test ~/Library/Application Support/Clique/SolFSTest.st ~/Desktop/test/

drwxrwxrwx 2 root wheel 0 Aug 19 11:29 test
xattr test - gives no output

versus the call series from my own code:
err = StorageCreate((PSolFSWideChar)mPath.utf16(), true, 1024,
&mStorage, sep, false, false);
where mPath = "/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Clique/SolFSTest.st"
sep = '/'

drwxrwxrwx 2 root wheel 0 Aug 19 11:29 test
xattr test - gives no output

Yet, inside the directory, I am unable to create/edit a file.

Here is a question that has occurred to me... Is it possible to create a mountpoint on a storage under OSX even if the passphrase for the storage is incorrect?
