Migrated from Macbook Pro to Macbook Air using Migration Assistant. On new Mac, try to use IJ Scan Utility Lite to scan. Get this error message, with no indication which folder or what to do about it:  

You do not have the required privileges to access the specified folder.

Sorry. I should have known that. Canon PIXMA TR4720.

Go into System Preferences->Privacy & Security and see if folder or disk access are showing you something you need to authorize.

Thanks for the advice. Didn't see anything that looked related to the IJ Scan Utility or to Canon at all on the Files and Folders list. I added the utility to the Full Disk Access list, but no help. Even uninstalled the utility, and downloaded and reinstalled it. No change.
