Backblaze (a TidBITS sponsor) has posted a support article outlining the steps that users must take in macOS 10.14 Mojave to grant full disk access to the backup company’s Mac client. Backblaze needs full disk access to access all the files necessary for it to complete its backup tasks. You’ll also need to update Backblaze to enable its menu bar icon to work in Mojave.
Both cases are related to Mojave’s tightened security and privacy preferences—for details, see “Mojave’s New Security and Privacy Protections Face Usability Challenges” (10 September 2018). We anticipate that Backblaze will release an update that will explicitly request the necessary permissions soon. If you haven’t yet upgraded to Mojave, this is another reason you might want to delay the installation.
