    do you have a link for a safe developer site for that software.

    Are you referring to Carbon Copy Cloner??

    If so, his site is very safe and secure and you can download his Carbon Copy Cloner application with full peace of mind from:
    Mac Backup Software | Carbon Copy Cloner | Bombich Software

    Oddly enough, I just checked the App Store and neither Carbon Copy Cloner nor Super Duper are listed!!! I guess Apple doesn't like either one for some strange reason, but then there are other reasons that I normally avoid the App Store now. Too many apps I've got from there have been crippled in one way or another that they fail to mention!!! That to me is about the same as downloading a hacked version of any software. So I always try and download directly from the developer's site, and they also get the full percentage for their software that way.

    PS:
    i know that catalina is 64bit only so at some point ill have to go thru all my apps that mayb 32 bit and get updates if i ever decide to go to catalina.
    Don't forget, there's no rule saying you have to be on the "latest and greatest" macOS. Especially when it has made some drastic changes and/or it doesn't contain any new features that you really don't need or possibly can't even use. Even the Mojave OS starts the process of crippling some older software.

    One of the reasons that I am generally still staying mainly with Mavericks, but some will say that's being too extreme. But hey, it works for me and I like it that way.

    PPS: what part of BC do you actually live in or is that too personal a question?? I was just curious but it is a large province and covers a lot of different areas!!!

    Not free Lori, but they do have a 30 day free trial period fully functional. You could also try SuperDuper which is free with limited usage.

    i thought so when i went to site.... I really don't need to pay for a software that I probably will never use. to buy it just in case it is not a serious enough reason to put money out.
    i can use super Duper and just deal with whatever has to be done if I have to use that.

    Are you using iCloud? If so, Safari bookmarks/reading lists are there as part of the process of keeping things in sync across devices. See here. Otherwise, the only way I can't seem to find something that mentions the reading list specifically.

    question....is there a way to export bookmark read lists in safari?
    My version of safari has under File(menu) -> Export bookmarks...

    It also has Import bookmarks..., and the file can be read in any text editor like TextEdit if need be.

    ... part 1/2 ...

    You can still export bookmarks that way but I couldn't seem to find a definite answer as to whether the reading list items were included when it's done that way. Don't have time to test it right now to see.

    That makes two of us, not too much helpful information.

    The only sort of workaround I could find was a reference to turn each of the reading lists into a bookmark but it seems it would have to be done one by one which sort of defeats the purpose.

    It seems that each reading list is actually an archive of the webpage, as it can be read offline, whereas a bookmark needs to be connected to the internet to read the webpage.

    Lori:

    Keep in mind that when upgrading to Mojave it will automatically change your file system to APFS from HFS+. Should be transparent but thought I would remind you anyway.

    so did some checking and sounds bit confusing for me.....says that most don't have any issues. and most go thru it without a glitch
    apparently one can opt to not use APFS and stay with HPF...tho not going that way...too many things to look at for the non techy gal.

    I checked disk utilities for my file system type and it said Logical Volume. not HFS ??? would presume after upgrade to Mojave...this will read APFS. not that this matters.

    don't really understand file system change....is it only for my MacBook or any drives I may connect to it?
    I wonder if this file system change will have any affect on all may external drives which are in the Mac Extended format.

    something new to learn about and may or may not be on any great concern.
    any further tips?
