Thread: Unpleasant surprise
12-22-2011, 08:24 PM #1Unpleasant surprise
To speed up my aging 2.16 GHz Macbook I emptied the caches in my Library and User Library as was suggested in another thread. Unfortunately, I lost all my Safari Bookmarks. They're still in Trash, but I haven't been able to recover them when opening Safari. I drug the cache labeled "Safari" back into the Library Application folder, rebooted, but NADA, just what must have been the original startup screen appeared when I selected "show all bookmarks".
Does anyone have a fix that a Ditz can perform? I've been using Macs since our first Apple 2E, but never tackled any thing technical before.

Do you use Time Machine if so they can be recovered from there ?

Try File>Import Bookmarks from the Safari menu and see if navigating to the recovered folder and selecting it works.I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

No, I'm running OS Tiger OS 10.4.11 which doesn't have TM. I've been digging around in stuff I've never done before because I'm trying to back up the system (which I've never done before in all these years) in anticipation of upgrading to Snow Leopard. So instead of streamlining I'm destroying stuff I wanted to migrate!
Thanks for the heads-up, though!
