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

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:

  1. Click the 'Start' button and go to 'Computer/My Computer'
  2. Go to C:/Program Files(86x)/Backblaze
  3. Right click on the folder, and select 'Properties'
  4. Click 'security' and set the permissions as follows for SYSTEM and ADMINISTRATORS
