Odrive runs for a few seconds, then exits

I’ve upgraded to Sierra a month a go, and my sync agent plugging stoped working a few days ago. I’ve uninstalled the odrive sync and when I’ve installed again, every time I start the program it’s disappear after a few seconds, I see the process starting but after a few seconds disappear with no error or message.

When I go to the .odrive folder in my user and list the bin folders, there’s nothing in it.

Hi @pacoirala,
Can you please open up a terminal and run this command for me?

"/Applications/odrive.app/Contents/MacOS/odrive" -v


I’m having the same problem.
My odrive is not syncing.

Here is the code:

Could not launch, which means the app is already running

Hi @andre1,
It looks like either the permissions in the .odrive folder are incorrect, or, for some reason, the odrive binary is missing/being removed.

Are you running an anti-virus or other actively-monitoring software? If so, can you temporarily disable it and then run this command again?

If you get the same error, open Finder and from the top menu select Go->Go to folder, type in ~/.odrive/, and hit enter you will be taken to the user’s odrive program folder. There you should be a “bin” folder, with a folder named “6073” inside of it. Do you see that? If so, inside “6073” do you see “odriveapp”?

Was odrive previously working on this system and then stopped, or is this the first time trying to run it?

Thank you Tony!

It was working fine before.
If I click twice in a file to unsync, odrive starts to run.
But odrive is not running automatically when I turn on my computer and if I click on the odrive icon in my applicattion folder, it doesn’t start.

Thank you for your help and thank you for the app, it’s great!!!



Hi @andre1,

Can you run this command from the terminal for me and paste the output here?

find "$HOME/.odrive" -type d -maxdepth 6; find "$HOME/.odrive" -type f | grep "MacOS/odrive"

Also, when you double-click a .cloud file and it launches odrive: while odrive is running, please run this command and paste the output here:

ps aux | grep odrive
