On macOS, you may see a dialog similar to: "FileMaker.app would like to access files in your Desktop folder."
You may also be asked for access to your Downloads folder or a network volume. This is a permissions prompt from the operating system, and it's important that you click OK to continue.
If you accidentally clicked Don't Allow, you'll need to manually update the setting.
- Click the Apple menu > System Preferences, then Security & Privacy, and finally Privacy
- Select Files and Folders from the options on the left
- Find FileMaker Pro in the list of applications on the right and check the boxes
to allow access in the necessary locations
- Restart FileMaker
