    I use Saft for Safari crash protection, etc. Well, it messed up on me once again and lost all my open documents. I use Time Machine, so any session histories should be in the backup.

    I assumed that I could just drop in an old ~/Library/Safari/LastSession.plist, but this appears not to be the case. When I reopen Safari, Saft restores something entirely different from what's in LastSession, and when I tell Safari to "Reopen all windows from last session", I mostly just get History and Top Sites tabs in place of my documents.

    I've tried digging around the file system, but I cannot find it. I also tried emailing Hao Li (the author of Saft), but he doesn't tend to respond to emails.

    Can anyone tell me where Saft stores its session information?

    Thanks!

    Got an answer

    ao Li responded to my email and told me that Saft stores the sessions in the Safari preferences file (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist). I quit Safari, pulled the prefs from earlier yesterday out of the backup, restarted Safari, and voila!
