Installing DropCopy on OSX 10.9.4
July 20, 2014
2:58 pm


I\'m keen to implement DropCopy for a small business who would like an alternative to AirDrop - so that the receiver doesn\'t have to manually accept files each time, etc.
All of the iMacs are running Mavericks.

As a test before buying the site license and rolling it out on the iMacs, I downloaded v1.9 ( from this website onto my Macbook Pro, but the archive wouldn\'t extract. I tried with both Archive Manager and The Unarchiver - AM reported \"no such file or directory\" and The Unarchiver reported a corrupt archive.

I installed from the App Store without a problem, though they will be using a site license and I\'ve been led to believe that site licenses can only be activated on downloads that aren\'t from the App Store, so I would like to test it exactly the way that we would need to roll it out on the iMacs.

Thanks in advance.

By the way, the Macbook Pro is fully up-to-date on OSX 10.9.4, as are the target iMacs.

not sure why you are having this issue - we just tried across our entire suite of machines in our lab and everything worked as expected: the zip file expands into a DMG, which you mount to install the app.

you can try to download the latest version of the app directly via this link and see if things go more smoothly:
