    There is not such an iweb folder in application support. You can find an iweb folder in documentation folder that is some folders below application support but there is nothing there. I have backup everything, so it should be somewhere there.

    Another thing i can comment, is that i have the iweb now and i make a new file. Neither this is saved somewhere, or at least i cannot localize it. I try to name it differently in order to be able to localize it, but nothing...
    thank you in advance.

    That folder is there, you just may not be accessing it correctly. That ~ squiggle means your user folder. So look in /Users/yourusername/Library/Application Support/iWeb/. You will see a file there called "domain". That is what you are after.

    The ~/Library folder is hidden by default in Lion and ML, and that is prolly why you don't see it. You can option-click the Go menu to see the Library folder listed.

    An easier way to get to that folder is to click the Desktop to bring focus to the Finder, then hit command-shift-g (all three at once). Then paste ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/ into the box that pops up and hit enter.

    thanks a lot for the answer. This was really strange. I know that the library is hidden so by using the shortcut i have saved the library on the sidebar now but i couldnt find this folder. By just using the shortcut you game me i made it.

    Now the problem is how to localize the folder on the backup files on my hard disk by using time machine. I cannot localize the folder there. I would appreciate it A LOT if you could help me. I really need to back up this web site.

    Get to the folder in Finder like I described earlier. Then click the Time Machine in the menu bar and click Enter Time Machine. That will open the star field Time Machine interface. Now scroll along the right side back in time to get to a save point where the domain file exists. Then click the file and click restore at the bottom right of the window. That should put the old version back in the folder.

    I did it now and i tried to map it back in time but it seems that there is not any older file than today, 3 hours ago !!! I know i had my file saved, because i use to work on it and i backed up everything the day before i formatted my mac.

    I don't know what else to tell you. If that is the same backup set from before you reinstalled, it should be there if you go back to a date before the install.

    i cannot find it. i may have done something wrong with the back up and time machine. Thanks a lot for the help. at least i know where to localize the domain, so same mistake is not going to happen.
