Hi ..
I have a macbook pro, im going to restore the system ( format it ), before doing that i transferred all my files and folders.
My question is how to save all my mac Apps so i can re-install them again after formatting my Macbook, since i don't want to lose all my apps .


Thanks

The big question is why are you going to format it? This ain't Windows and the need to format and do a fresh install is an extreme and rarely needed fix for any issue.

Having said that, if you have not created a backup using Time Machine, SuperDuper! or CarbonCopyCloner; I'd suggest you do that before you begin.

The method for then restoring will be dependent on which method of backup you elect to use.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
