I added the nofail option and it boots up fine but now I can’t mount the folder because I get

fuse: unknown option nofail

How can I use a nofail alternative with fuse? I’m looking for a way more specific than this.

The error was because the mount point wasn’t empty. I may need nofail in the future to avoid this same error.

I dont think you should use nofail, there is probably a away to get fstab to work 🤔

Did you read the logs to see what the issue is? can you manually mount?
