Some apps like CrashPlan, Sophos, VM Fusion, and Spirion are not functioning properly after upgrading to macOS 10.14 Mojave or macOS 10.15 Catalina.
Certain applications need access to the whole disk in order to function properly. This will require explicitly allowing the applications to access the full disk.
