Follow the prompts to go to Settings > Privacy and Security > Full Disk Access and enable Full Disk Access for FileCloud Desktop.

Once that is configured, login moves through a few screens introducing you to FileCloud Desktop, and then opens the FileCloud Desktop dashboard. 
The dashboard opens to the Live screen. FileCloud Desktop cannot begin tracking and synchronizing online and offline FileCloud file activity until you download FileCloud folders and files to your local drive. So initially, the Live tab appears empty.
Click the folder icon at the bottom of the FileCloud Desktop dashboard to view the FileCloud folder, which now appears under Locations in your finder.

If this is the first time you have logged in to FileCloud Desktop, each file and folder should appear with a cloud icon next to it, which indicates that it hasn't been downloaded locally (made available offline) yet.

Begin setting up FileCloud Desktop by making FileCloud files and folders available offline.
