rekordbox Export Issue (macOS Big Sur)
For users who receive an error message from rekordbox when trying to export saying that some files may not have been exported and see the error log, this is an issue due to Apple's 11.5 update which changed the file permissions; there are two work-arounds while we wait for Apple to correct the issue:
1) Use this command in the Terminal to change the attributes:
sudo xattr -cr <filepath to audio files>
So if your files are all located in your user's Music folder, it would be:
sudo xattr -cr ~/Music
You would have to do this anytime you add new music to the folder until Apple resolves the issue.
2) Instead of exporting to a FAT32 formatted USB drive, use an HFS+ (macOS Journaled Extended) formatted USB drive instead.
Thanks for your understanding.
