    Please take your time.  Mac M1's have only been out for 4 months now.

    @Mike Vaia, both MS OneDrive / SharePoint and Google Drive work with the M1 chip. In Google's case, compatibility was restored in late January. Clearly, four months is plenty of time to update the software. Box is the laggard here.

    @Robin Jordan, I 100% agree with you.  Based on the downvote on my comment, I'm sensing you didn't pick up on my heavy sarcasm.

    @Mike Vaia, apologies. I assumed you were another Box moderator piling in with helpful suggestions. Vote amended accordingly.

    Right now the solution for M1 Macs involves enabling "Reduced Security". This is a non-starter for businesses I support, and has been a bit of a wake-up call about Box's lack of attention/resources dedicated to the Apple platform. I hope the version that doesn't require kernel extensions is available soon and is very stable.

    The complexities involved in installing Box Drive and the reduced security setting required on M1 devices is a huge issue for us. When will this be fixed!
