sandbox and sierra download - a wee problem
hi all

I just thought I would share a issue I ran into using a sandboxed drive, an SD

I have set up a second partition on my internal drive and created a sandbox of the main drive, I have then
booted into the sandboxed partition and gone to download the public beta of OS X Sierra, when I clicked
on the download button in the app store, nothing happened at all, no down load etc etc, so I did a bit of digging
and found that one suggestion was to “check for unfinished downloads”, in the app store, did this, I was then
prompted to sign in, which I couldn’t do, and had an error thrown at me saying I can’t login, so I dug some more
and found that because the Shared folder under users was a sym link and I used two step verification, that the down
load was never going to happen, so to work around this I copied he original “Shared” folder over and deleted the symbolic link, problem gone.
and the down load is working perfectly.

Have you run into this Dave

This is scheduled to be fixed in the next SuperDuper update: we're working around the store bug where it doesn't follow the symlink as it should.
