Fixing your Permissions so Backblaze Settings will 'stick' (Mac)

Setting Permissions on the Backblaze Folder

If you have a problem getting your changes in the Backblaze settings to "stick", the most likely cause is an issue with the file permissions on the Backblaze folder. Backblaze needs to be able to write to the settings file when a user makes a change.

The steps for fixing the permissions and getting the Backblaze backup settings repaired are:

Setting Permissions on the Backblaze Folder

1. Click on the Finder 

 

2. Click "Go" in the menu bar

3. Click "Go To Folder..."

The Backblaze.bzpkg package will be selected. Choose "Get Info" from the File menu.

 

Set the permissions to how they are in the picture. Please DO NOT apply this to enclosed items.
