New Install/User on iMac

Post by Malaneystuff »

I just recently moved to Apple iMac from Windows where I used both XnView and FastStone. Since FastStone is not available in Apple world I seem to be locked into XnView (since I'm avoiding PS Elements Organizer) - not an issues but having problems. XnView does not see any files/pictures on any of my external USB drives. The drives are formatted in both FAT32 and APFS. It sees the drives but no content. No issues on the OS drive. Is there something I'm missing?
Thanks

Do you have given rights to access files on external drives?

I believe all the permissions are OK. Drives and files are accessible from other applications.

OK got it working. My initial problem was self inflicted. I did not install it properly and the app never got to the applications directory so I was actually running it from the download disk image. Once properly installed the app showed up in the permissions window where I set access to external drives.
Thanks for your help.
