    Am re-reading the CCC Manual - oh the suspense!! - and have this question about File Paths on my Mac...

    Code:
    /Library/Logs/CCC.*
    
    If I'm not mistaken, this is the path to the general "Library" directory which apples to *all* Users, right?


    Code:
    ~/Library/Caches/com.bombich.ccc/
    
    And I believe this is the path to a *specific* User's "Library" directory (e.g. User1), right?


    Sincerely,


    Debbie

    You are correct.

    Have fun finishing the manual. I won't spoil it by telling you how it ends.

    Yes.

    A filepath starting with / means "from the top".
    A filepath starting with ~ means "from the current user home".

    That's what I thought.

    Glad I got something right for a change!

    Thanks,
