The operation can’t be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -8072)


I’ve been using Cryptomator for macOS for years and there’s something very annoying: More often than not, when I try to rename a random file, it returns the following error:

"The operation can’t be completed. An unexpected error occurred (error code -8072)."

Does anyone know where that error comes from? And how to eliminate it?

Whenever I lock the vault and unlock it again I can rename and edit my files as I wish.

Searching for this topic on the web, I found a workaround which consists on preventing macOS to create .DS_Store files on network drives, through the following Terminal command:

defaults write DSDontWriteNetworkStores -bool TRUE

And yet, the problem hasn’t disappeared.

More infos on my system:

  • Cryptomator 1.6.14
  • macFUSE 4.4.1
  • macOS Big Sur 11.7

Any thoughts are much appreciated.

Same issue here…

  • cryptomator 1.6.15
  • macFUSE 4.4.1
  • macOS Monterey 12.6

Is there anyone else having these issues? Could we pls have some support here?

I also have this problem. Most recently I created a rtf file in Documents. I cut and pasted it to the Cryptomator folder. When I attempted to rename the file I got the 8072 error.

(I had this problem with Mountain Duck - which caused me to stop using it. But it now appears to not be specific to Mountain Duck.)
