I am using
encfs @1.7.5 and
osxfuse @2.6.4 installed via MacPorts 2.2.1 on my MacBook Pro Retina Late 2013 which is running OS X Mavericks 10.9.2. When opening certain files (e.g. xlsx, pdf) in my
encfs volume, I get an error "X is damaged and can't be opened." as well as a suggestion to move it to trash. However, when I copy that file elsewhere (i.e. not on the
encfs volume), it appears to work just fine. Why is this?
EDIT: I looked online and found a post involving disabling GateKeeper. It did the trick. In essence, you go into "Security Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere".
I understand that the solution works, but I would like to know why it works. Thanks in advance.
EDIT 2: Also, if someone could tag my post with
encfs, it'd be very appreciated.
