- OS X 10.10 or later
- We recommend using a version of macOS that receives ongoing security support from Apple (usually the last 3 versions)
Download the installation package from your Magnus Box web portal. Once downloaded right click the .pkg file and click open. You can then follow the prompts. Once installed, the client software prompts for account details to log in.
If you are running the
.pkg file from the Downloads directory, macOS will offer to move the
.pkg file to the Trash after a successful installation.
The installer will safely remove and upgrade any prior versions of Magnus Box, including those with a different software branding.
Silent upgrade (advanced)
You can silently upgrade the software remotely via the Magnus Box web portal, or by running
/usr/sbin/installer -allowUntrusted -pkg "Backup.pkg" -target / via your remote management software.
macOS does not have a standard system for uninstalling programs. However, you can still uninstall Magnus box by running the following command from a terminal window:
sudo -u root "/Applications/Backup.app/Contents/Resources/uninstall"
This will automatically stop all running Magnus Box processes, unregister Magnus Box's
launchd services, and remove all application files from the disk.
Uninstalling the software preserves any username/password credentials saved on this computer. If you also want to remove the saved username/password credentials, add this command-line:
sudo -u root "/Applications/Backup.app/Contents/Resources/uninstall" --also-remove-saved-passwords
