If you use a Mac, you may see the following Version Mismatch notification when you try to launch WorkDocs Drive:

                            Notice saying that macFUSE has been updated, but the system has an older version.

This happens when a WorkDocs Drive update uses a new kernel extension. Follow these steps to fix the issue.

To fix the mismatch

  1. Restart your machine. This unloads the current extension.

  2. Try to start Amazon WorkDocs Drive. Your OS blocks the new kernel extension and prompts you to allow it.

  3. Go to System Preferences, then Security and Privacy, and allow the extension.

                                    Notice saying the system extension was updated.

  4. Restart your machine. This loads the new kernel extension.

  5. Start Amazon WorkDocs Drive.

Delete unnecessary files from your local disk and Recovered Files folder.

If you change a file that you don't have permissions to edit, you can't upload that file to your Amazon WorkDocs site. Instead, the site saves the changes to your local Recovered Files folder. You can open this folder from the Amazon WorkDocs Drive menu by choosing the question mark icon, then Go to recovery folder. From there, you can upload the file to Amazon WorkDocs as a new file.

Delete unnecessary files from your local Recovered Files folder.

Delete unused files to free up storage space. If you need more space after deleting unused files, contact your Amazon WorkDocs administrator.
