This application, OSXFUSE version 2.6.4 has suddenly appeared in System Preferences. There is nothing I have installed of late, other than Disk Drill Pro. Anyone have information on it as don't like these self installing apps?

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

It supposedly replaces MacFUSE Harry. Read about here. It wouldn't install by itself Harry. Someone there must have downloaded it.

DiskDrill requires it for some reason and installs it. I got it too.

Oh, great, thanks guys - my Disk Drill Pro was complaining MacFUSE was out of date, now I know what to do Not that I use any NTFS drives, and one old ext3 is in NAS, so that's fine too ... for now.

That's strange, I installed Disk Drill Pro and OSXFuse did not install on my machine. Besides, I don't know why I would even need it since I do not have any NTFS or Linux formatted drives.

Uh-oh...looks like I may be the one to blame for this (Disk Drill).

FWIW...I installed Disk Drill on three of my computers so far...and I have a couple more to go. I checked on one of them...and yup...it was there in the System Preferences.

I clicked on the icon...and got a window with an uninstall button/option. I clicked the uninstall button (since I didn't want it)...and it said that "OSXFuse" didn't appear to be installed (which was a bit confusing).

I then right-clicked on the OSXFuse icon in System Preferences...and chose "remove".

Is there a negative side to having OSXFUSE installed? I have plenty of processing power and storage, so that's not a problem.

As I said, DiskDrill was complaining about MacFUSE, and now, since I installed its replacement, it seems happy

I don't know, however, it's not installed on my system and Disk Drill Pro seems happy without it.

Removed it, fired up DiskDrill Pro, got the pop up notification, that my MacFUSE is out of date (there isn't one), so installed the OSXFUSE back ... unless I hear that, it has some negative effect on the system, I'm letting it stay ...

When I launch Disk Drill...after (I think) removing OSXFuse...I get the "Internal Module Update Required" message.

I e-mailed the Disk Drill folks to see what exactly the connection/relationship is between Disk Drill and this MacFuse/OSXFuse program.

I will post their reply.

Good work Nick. I removed it also from System Preferences and get the same message about 'Internal Module' business. Think software developers would advise when this sort of installation by stealth occurs. Getting like the Windows World. Even worse according to this MACOSXFUSE will not even work properly with Snow Leopard OS X.6 and not at all with later operating systems!

Thanks Nick, it'll be great to hear, whether it is actually required for correct operation of DiskDrill ... No point having unnecessary code running on the system.

I'm wondering why I'm not receiving an error about OSXFuse? I have Disk Drill Pro monitoring SMART status and have run the app several times.

OK, I just ran "Find Any File" and found the OSXFuse package installer here:

Macintosh HD/Applications/Disk Drill.app/Contents/Resources/OSXFuse.pkg

But as far as I can determine, it did not install, but I get no error when running Disk Drill Pro.

I think it may be the presence of Paragon NTFS which negates OSXFuse. I run Paragon, and Disk Drill and didn't get OSXFuse or any prompts about it at all.

Does that correlate with any of your experiences?

EDIT: Nuts, you guy's doomed me. Now DD is throwing up the OSXFuse notification. I canceled the install of it. Oh, well, I'll quit using DD and use DR+ if anything happens.
