Feature request: Mounting with "allow_root" on macOS


#1

There has been a similar request here: Spotlight indexing of FUSE volumes, but mine has a different background, so I opened a new topic.

I would like to schedule a regular backup to my Cryptomator-vault with Carbon Copy Cloner. This doesn’t work, however, because CCC runs as root and the Cryptomaotor-vaults by default mount only for the current user. Therefore access is denied.

I realize there is a way to enable “allow_root” myself via Terminal and I have checked that out. But I didn’t find any clear instructions (clear to ME) and to be honest, it’s a little too hot for me. I wouldn’t know exactly what I’m doing, so I won’t do it.

If there are no huge objections, could there be a feature to simply allow that mount-option in Cryptomator’s UI?

Thanks!
