Egnyte Desktop App for Big Sur

Egnyte has released Desktop App 3.9.1, with full support for macOS Big Sur, the recently released new OS.

In addition to Big Sur support, the updates in Desktop App for Mac 3.9.1 also include fixes to searches returning over 30 results and to an issue with accessing files/folders within searches.

Egnyte urges users to be mindful of the following known behaviors:

  • Big Sur requires user approval before loading any change in a third party's kernel extension and requires a reboot to complete upgrade/installation. See the helpdesk article for more details.
  • Mac devices powered by an M1 chip are not supported in this version; this support will be included in the next update.
  • After updating your macOS from Catalina to Big Sur, you will need to manually start the Egnyte application; it will not start automatically.
