I recently updated my 27in Mid 2011 iMac to a 1Tb SSD HD and to High Sierra. Now I don't have access to my Google drive :(

I've been looking everywhere and have found no solution to this. Can anyone help?

More details from the error:

"An uncaught exception was raised during execution of the main script.

This may mean that an unexpected error has occurred, or that you do not have all of the dependencies for this application.

See the Console for a detailed traceback."

Two errors I can see in the Console:

[ERROR] - Unknown CGXDisplayDevice: 0x41dc9d00

volume validation failed for <<(null)>>

Any ideas?

  • what "script" ? can you access Google drive online ? – Ruskes Feb 27 '19 at 18:30
  • "script" meaning just opening a fresh install of Backup & Sync. That's exactly what the error dialog displays. I can indeed open G drive online. – Fernando Ortega Mar 1 '19 at 14:55
  • I suggest you install and run Analysis tool called EtreCheck then publish the report here. etrecheck.com – Ruskes Mar 1 '19 at 17:15
  • I have exactly the same problem, with an iMac 27inches 2019 (MacOS Mojave 10.14.4). Any update on this? – Matt Mar 31 '19 at 11:24

Had the same problem, now solved. ~/Library/Application Support/Google belongs to root. Either change privileges:

sudo chmod a+wx ~/Library/"Application Support"/Google

Or change owner:

sudo chown NameOfMyAccount ~/Library/"Application Support"/Google 

I encountered a similar problem after upgrading to Mac OSX Catalina. I had to do the following.

First, add a new folder named "Drive" in

~/Library/"Application Support"/Google

Second, I changed the rights to "Drive"

sudo chmod a+wx ~/Library/"Application Support"/Google/Drive

Hope this helps
