Yes, my Mac went down with all files on board. And I have a large iWeb/.Mac site, which I want to recover. Is it possible to retrieve it from .Mac? Or are they kept somewhere within a user directory? How can I retrieve it all???!!

I'd backed up my user directory, but not the application directories.

Tony

In your user directory, open up your user Library, then goto Application Support, then goto the iWeb folder. In there you will find a file named Domain. That is the file you are looking for. It contains your whole site.

Ah - so easy when you know how! Many thanks.

It would, however, be a useful addition to iWeb, to be able to download a site from iMac....

You could try SiteSucker

Unfortunately SiteSucker doesn't do too well - it seems to be too limited to cater for all the features. In any case, there's no means (I think) in iWeb for importing HTML files; it has its own structure.

Even more unfortunately, the original files were lost, as the user files I'd backed up didn't include the local iWeb files!

good tip tonyb, now you have all the files on your computer using SiteSucker, how you put it back in iWeb ? iWeb uses a package file called Domain located in user/library/application support/iWeb. Do you have to make a Package with all the files? if yes how do you do it?

Thanx
