    icon files
    PROBLEM: I can't find where Icon files are stored on my Powerbook G4 w/ Leopard OS.
    I downloaded some icons I love. I've used them ever since I found them. The icons were not part of Candybar but Candybar was what i used to switch my old icons for the new ones I'd found. Now that I don't have candybar, I would like to find where those icons are on my hard drive so that I can still have access to them and maybe use LiteIcon to change icons.

    Hi, Welcome to M-F

    Unfortunately CandyBar stores all the icons in a .pixadex data file which is a CandyBar format.
    While it also has the icons stored separately in a huge 0-10 numbered folder system, those icons are also in a CandyBar format.

    If your lucky some application can still open the files, but I don't think so.

    The database and icons (if they still exist) are here
    /Users/####/Library/Application\ Support/CandyBar/
