Sync Checker

Known Issues

It is safe to run Sync Checker with early seeding versions of macOS 10.14, but you won't get permission to check all files and you may receive incorrect security warnings: Because current versions of Sync Checker were not explicitly designed for macOS Mojave, the program cannot get permission to access data of specially protected applications, such as Safari or Contacts, for example. If you try to sync-check such files, even if the files are owned by you, Sync Checker will silently omit them. You may additionally receive misleading security warnings, e.g. a message that Sync Checker attempts to access your private data when you instruct Sync Checker to read certain areas of your home folder.

Workaround: These issues will be addressed in a future version of Sync Checker designed to run with macOS Mojave. It is not possible to provide such a version already, because Apple is still working on these privacy features. They are neither ready, nor documented.
