I am trying to use FUSE and SSHFS to mount a home directory from a cluster to my local machine (MacBook Pro with Sierra). Everything was fine until I updated to Sierra and now I am not able to use two scripts a professor gave me to mount and unmount the remote filesystem easily! So I tried to do that by using

sshfs ics: ~/Desktop

I successfully did what I need to do but now on my Desktop there is this Desktop folder that I am not able to delete because if I try it says that it is necessary to MacOS. What can I do? Thank you.


Are you asking how to unmount the sshfs mount? Typically this is done using:

fusermount -u /path/to/mountpoint

  • The problem that this was a test and now I have the folder remaining there! I do not want it any more... – wrong_path Sep 21 '16 at 23:50
