I have just installed the new version of Moneydance. After installing the program I attempted to change syncing from Dropbox to iCloud. When I did this, the program quit unexpectedly and continues to do so each time I reopen it. I have given Moneydance full disk access.
An error report file is attached.

    Question. Is your data volume on a different disk / volume to your startup volume?

    Yes - iCloud Drive is enabled and it shows Moneydance is storing documents in iCloud.

    When I execute the command, finder does open. I am able to create files in sync directory. There is a folder in there. I moved one level up (xxx/Documents/) and was still able to create files.

    I have read and write privileges as user on Sync folder, group and Everyone have Read Only.

    Yes. My data volume is on a different disk than start up. Moneydance has full disk access.

    I have a sneaky feeling this may be the issue…. It shouldn’t matter…. I’ve asked the developer.

    Which volume is this on?


    The same as your data volume or the Os volume?

    FYI - Sean (the developer) is changing the code to cope with this situation.. I would (hopefully) expect a fix in an upcoming preview 🤞

    This issue (sync crashes when iCloud is on different volume to Mac startup volume) should be fixed in 2022.3(4061). Can you check and report back?

    I loaded 4061 and so far it looks great. I opened the file with original settings several times without incident. I then changed it over to iCloud sync and it worked great.

    I then entered some new transactions on the source and remote copies and all transactions sync'd as expected. Stable so far.
