Downloaded IDrive this week and need to get McAfee firewall to allow it to make backup of my computer

Hi, I installed IDrive this week to make backups of my computer. I received the error message " Check if you have granted the necessary privileges on local firewall settings for it to run correctly."

I have McAfee Live Safe on my computer.

I did  chat with IDrive and they said to contact McAfee to find out how to give permission to allow it to make the backups.

I went into McAfee settings and did not find a way to do as the IDrive tech suggested.

Appreciate any help or advice on how to allow  McAfee firewall  to allow IDrive to make the backups.
