hey there! can you help me set this on my Macbook, please? my 90 days trial ended and I do not have access to my files!

you should just be able to run the command above in Terminal, and that should renew the trial.

Another way that may be useful:

  1. Open Finder and open > libraries > application support
  2. Then open terminal and type:
    1 defaults write AppleShowAllFiles true
    2 killall Finder
  3. Then go back to Finder and find .ffuserdata file and delete it. Now the trial should be reseted to 90 days.

To show hidden files (which is what the defaults command does), you can also just press Cmd+Shift+. at the same time in any Finder window.
