notepad ++ and sentinel one

Post by linuxteche » Mon Jun 10, 2019 5:02 am

Hi, in my org they recently installed sentinel one so notepad ++ (using wine) is flagged as a malicious tool. I have many unsaved files, I want to know how to get those files. I am on MACOS and I don't know where it keeps the files that are yet to given a formal name. Could you please help?

I want to know what is the default location of files that I did not save. I know that notepad ++ saves the files automatically to a default location, in windows I look into c:\Users\<username>\appdata\roaming\notepad++\ but in this installation using wine where can I find the files so that I can save those files.

From the WineHQ macOS Wiki:
Where are Wine's settings stored?
In your home folder (/Users/<username>/ resp. ~/) in the hidden folder .wine
Your location should be something like:

Code: Select all

/Users/<username>/.wine/drive_c/Users/<username>/appdata/roaming/notepad++

I see the following

ls -lrta
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 2 user1 staff Users 64 Mar 6 17:18 LocalLow
drwxr-xr-x 3 user1 staff Users 96 Mar 6 17:18 .
drwxr-xr-x 24 user1 staff Users 768 Mar 6 17:20 ..
Desktop1:AppData root# pwd
/Users/user1/.wine/drive_c/users/user1/AppData
Desktop1:AppData root#

I don't see anything the Locallow nor I see roaming.

Thanks for your help.

Hi, can you guys tell how to remove the wine app from MacOS? I tried the following

mv /users/<username>/.wine /tmp/, but the app still remains in Mac. I don't see the app in the applications as well. So, could you help here?

The commmand you posted just moved your prefix into /tmp/ it should be removed on reboot/relogging.

The default “Wine Stable/Devel/Staging.app” install location would be

Code: Select all

/Applications/
The secondary install option would be

Code: Select all

~/Applications/
aka your users Applications folder.

But as the system is managed it’s possible “Wine” was removed remotely.
