How do I change firewall setting for McAfee to allow Idrive to make backups

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 did a 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.

In firewall and its Internet connections for program section add the exe file for idrive and allow it. It maybe necessary there to also disable netguard but try it first with it enabled
