MacFUSE is a FUSE-Compliant File System Implementation Mechanism for Mac OS X. MacFUSE implements a mechanism that makes it possible to implement a fully functional file system in a user-space program on Mac OS X (10.4 and above). It aims to be API-compliant with the FUSE (Filesystem in USErspace) mechanism that originated on Linux. Therefore, many existing FUSE file systems become readily usable on Mac OS X. The core of MacFUSE is in a dynamically loadable kernel extension.

To update to a version of MacFUSE (beta) compatible with [Mountain] Lion:

1. Completely remove MacFuse either via Preferences panel or manually (finder search of file names in Library directory should help)

2. Download MacFuse 2.2.2 -

3. Install from the MacFuse package installer - it may or may not load the preference panel - but if it completes - it has installed. Finder and dock may suddenly restart at this time - don't be alarmed.

4. It should work this time - if not - try rebooting to see if that loads MacFuse.

Can't get it to work on Mountain Lion. I install is, and it says in the preference pane that it doesn't appear to be installed. Worked fine on Lion.

Managed to work with sshfs on ML. Manually removed all files like macfuse*, osxfuse*. Then installed v.2.2.3 beta. Now it's working

Thanks a lot. Worked perfectly for my MacbookPro with Mountain Lion.
1) Uninstalled MacFuse from System preference (the icon continues to remain)
2) In terminal, logged in as 'root' then:
a) cd /
b) find . -xdev -name *fuse* -exec ls -l {} \;
c) Of all the files found, remove the ones with 'Macfuse' name.
d) Restart system -> Install Macfuse from above link -> Restart again.
3) You are done!

Check out OSXFUSE. It is a drop-in replacement for MacFUSE and supports OS X 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7 (Intel and PowerPC architecture).

Worked like a charm to have my external hard drive back up and running!
