MacFUSE is a FUSE-Compliant File System Implementation Mechanism for Mac OS X. MacFUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on Mac OS X (10.4 and above). It aims to be API-compliant with the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) mechanism that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on Mac OS X. The core of MacFUSE is in a dynamically loadable kernel extension.

How FUSE-compliant is MacFUSE? Well, enough so that many popular FUSE file systems can be easily compiled and work on Mac OS X--often out of more...

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • Note from the Developer: "This project is no longer being maintained. We cannot currently help with any OS X 10.7 (or any large feline) related bugs or issues. The MacFuse Google group is a decent resource for finding forks/replacement projects."

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.6.8

"OSXFUSE allows you to extend Mac OS X's native file handling capabilities via third-party file systems. It is a successor to MacFUSE, which is no longer being maintained. "

Once it's installed it still needs to quit and restart prefs when selected, then (at least on my system) says it can't connect with server to check for updates and it looks like I don't have MacFuse installed. Huh? As Pmcarrion writes below, this is the one to get: http://www.tuxera.com/mac/macfuse/MacFUSE-Tuxera-2.2.dmg - it's flawless and no CPU hog.

Does that work with Parallels 7 as a replacement for the MacFUSE installed by Parallels? I would ask Parallels, but they don't seem to want to answer anyone about this being the unprofessionals that they are.

@Cowicide

You should switch to using OSXFUSE. It works as an upgrade and replacement of MacFUSE. The MacFUSE project is dead and should not be used anymore.

Thank you, Negritude. I'm switching to OSXFUSE now. :)

I should also note for others that MacFUSE, etc. is no longer needed for Parallels. It has it's own internal thing now. I'm now just going to use OSXFUSE to make sure I can open various formats, etc. though.

I just installed v2.2.1 on my MBP i7 on 10.6.8. The fan went absolutely nuts. Haven't had fan noise like that since my G4 Titanium. Removed MacFuse, fan returned to normal. Now to get an older version. On the other hand, I think VMware ran a bit better.

"Now that Lion is out, I felt it was time to wrap up the old 2.1.9 release, which has proved to be rather dependable, with a more 'stable' version number and installer infrastructure that supports Mac OS X Lion. This is probably the last unofficial MacFUSE-derived binary release from myself/Tuxera... in the future OSXFUSE / FUSE4X will take over."

FYI, the MacFUSE project is dead. It's been forked as Fuse4X:

Thanks for sharing. Hope this will bring new life to the project. Although I'm not sure how smooth the transition will be. Lot's of open questions remain, like: will Truecrypt work with fuse4x or not?

While Fuse4X is fully compatible with MacFUSE, it is not a drop-in replacement. The developer's of any software have to recompile their programs to use Fuse4X.

It's also listed here at: http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/39025/fuse4x

Check out OSXFUSE. It is compatible with MacFUSE file systems (drop-in replacement). Nothing has to be recompiled and has recently been adopted by TrueCrypt as an alternative for MacFUSE.

Does this work with MacFUSE 2.1.7 listed below? And, if so.. why didn't 2.1.7 below install a prefpane. Ugh.. This is all very confusing.

You should follow these steps in order to have the latest version of MacFuse:
1) Install http://macfuse.googlecode.com/files/MacFUSE-2.0.3%2C2.dmg - RESTART
2) Install http://www.tuxera.com/mac/macfuse-core-10.5-2.1.9.dmg - RESTART
3) Install http://content.wuala.com/contents/grahamperrin/public/2010/07/31/a/MacFUSE.prefPane-2.0-64-bit-2009-09-10.zip?dl=1

Now you have the latest version of MacFuse and the 64bit prefpane.

Why is this thing still 32-bits? No interest in releasing a modern version for Snow Leopard?

64-bit != "modern"

Snow Leopard needs ver. 2.1.5 beta (or later). The only access to downloading it is to use the prefpane for ver. 2.0.3.2 and check the "Show Beta Versions" checkbox, then check for updates.
