macOS Ventura -- "System Events" Control?

Hello there! :wave:

New to odrive on macOS, wanted to ask about the following permission for “System Events” that is requested by the odrive installer under macOS Ventura. What feature/functionality is lost if this access isn’t allowed? GUI below for reference. Thank you very much! :slight_smile:


Hi @Jmtyra,
This is for monitoring filesystem events to know when changes have been made on the local system so that odrive can sync them.

Thanks Tony! :slight_smile: I appreciate the information. :+1:

Sharing one more in case others have questions or see these prompts, the installer might also ask. A reinstall may be required if “Don’t Allow” is clicked (or the dialog box times out) during install, such as in my situation.
