    Hello

    Today I did a wonderfull investment and finally bought an external harddisk (250 Gb lacie). I can almost afford it too :)

    Right now I'm making backups of all my stuff... So, my question is, and it should be an easy one: How do I make backup/copy of all the bookmarks I've got in safari?

    Extra advice on what other things which I should also backup would be greatly appreciated!

    thanks

    Adam

    If the drive is large enough, why not just back up the entire hard disk using CCC, much easier than trying to pick this file and that.

    Click on the debug menu -> export bookmarks

    If you don't have the debug menu enabled quit safari and open terminal.
    Type this exactly as it is capitals and all
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

    Thank you VERY much

    iLikeMyiMac, i took your advice and it worked perfectly... terminal is a strange and amazing thing to me - and i never dare touch it on my own, hehe... one day with time on my hands i'd really like to find out more about it... now I'll just need to find out what all the other stuff in the debug-menu is!? :)


    And thanks kingjr3 - ccc seem to be a very cool app that i will look into soon... just too big a mouthfull for me right now :rolleyes: (leaving day after tomorrow for 10 days of studytour in serbia/bosnia/croatia - lots of stuff to do before)

    gotta love this forum
