Authentication is needed [Mac]

Post by beslain »

Hi,

I installed DDRescue GUI on my Mac. When I open it, it will requir authentication. See Attachement.

It just say "Password" nothing else.

What should I type in?

Thank you

Kind regrads.

Hi,

You need to enter your user password. This is because DDRescue-GUI needs some higher-level privileges in order to do the low-level disk reading and writing operations, and to collect disk information.

Hope this helps,
Hamish
