Stability issues MacOS

I use an M1 Macbook air with Sonoma. After installing NetDrive I get a lot of beachballs, and the Finder has crashed so severely that I had to reboot the computer several times to be able to relaunch Finder. I use OneDrive, Dropbox and Google Drive. I also plan to add several S3 buckets, and use it in a mixed Windows/Mac environment. I haven’t tried the Windows version yet.

Last crash was when I right-clicked a folder. I got a beach ball. After some time I force quit Finder and NetDrive, but Finder never recovered until I restarted the computer. It was like running OS9 again… :slight_smile:
I am evaluating NetDrive before purchase, but had to uninstall it due to it’s extreme instability. Is there some known issue here? I like the simplicity and speed, but it’s just not working very well for me.

I also use ODrive at the same time for syncing. Maybe there could be a clash there? Anyway, I really like how NetDrive works, so I would like to find a solution!

This is strange. I reinstalled NetDrive, and now I don’t see the stability issues I had earlier. My system runs fine. However, Dropbox doesn’t work at all. When I try to access files on Dropbox, Netdrive disconnects the Dropbox volume and reconnects. This is repeatable for all files and folders. Dropbox simply doesn’t work. I tried removing the share, and reconnect. I have also rebooted the computer. I will attach the log files here.
I mount using the “Network drive” option. What’s the technical difference to “Local drive”? (8.7 MB)

OK. I suppose I will look for another sollution. Thanks.
