as I could not get iExplorer to mount any iOS folder on my Mac from my user account, I tried from the administrator account and Bingo ! It worked right away.
The question then is : how to mount iOS folders from a non-admin user account ?
Usually, while working from standard (non-admin) user account, OS X will prompt you to enter Administrator name and password when such privileges is needed (to delete an app, for instance).
But iExplorer doesn't seem to handle admin privileges the way OS X expect it.
Is there any known workaround ?
There is a setting to make mounting work in a non-admin OS X user. Just go into the non-admin user, open iExplorer, and then open iExplorer Preferences and click on the Disk Mounting tab and change the setting from External Disks to Connected Servers.
If you still have any issues mounting in non-admin OS X users when disk mounting preferences are set to Connected Servers, please submit a support ticket, and we’ll be glad to help you further.
