    Hello chaps

    Today I installed Leopard after saving my hard drive onto an external drive using Carbon Copy Cloner.

    Everything's looking good so far, and I've managed to drag and drop a lot of my app's over with little fuss.

    The really annoying issue I've run into is with my bookmarks. Thinking it would be a simple case of copying over a folder, I didn't do a lot of research, but it looks like I should have exported my bookmarks in tiger for importing in Leopard.

    Is there any way I can import my backed up book marks? I found some .plist files, which when clicked load up an individual favourite, so all is not lost, but this method would mean loading up 100's of URLs and bookmarking them manually.

    Thanks in advance

    Your data in ~/Documents
    ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook (copy the whole folder)

    Also in ~/Library/Application Support (copy whatever else you need)

    ~ /Library/Keychains (copy the whole folder)
    ~/Library/Mail (copy the whole folder)
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist This is a very important file which contains all email account settings and general mail preferences.

    ~ /Library/iTunes (copy the whole folder)
