OSX High Sierra, sshfs setup:

sshfs username@hostname:/tmp/mnt/cruzer64 /Users/user/mount

Listing the contents from the command line performs as expected:

ls /Users/user/mount

The target directory is returned in BASH:

la -l /Users/user | grep mount

The folder ~/mount disappears from Finder after the sshfs server is mounted.

  • Why does the sshfs folder disappear in Finder and
  • What can be done to restore visibility in finder?

The problem / issue is confined to the Finder application

    Does it only disappear from Finder or has the remote filesystem unmounted as well? – mjturner Mar 24 '20 at 10:53
  • The problem, unexpected disappearance of ~/mount, is confined to Finder. BASH works as expected. Network access to files through sshfs works as expected from command line. – gatorback Mar 24 '20 at 16:34
  • Have you tried 'SetFile -a v <folder>' to reveal it? – Adrian Zaugg Mar 22 at 23:32
