Hello there.

What is Windows' appdata folder equivalent in OS X please? I'm trying to track down an iesnare flash cookie that I found on my Windows machine. I figure the Mac has it too because I use it for the same purposes.

Thanks!

Thanks bobtomay.

While I can use the delete all option in System Preferences, I'd like to see if I have it saved in my machine. I checked the link and I have neither of these:
~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/#SharedObjects
~/Library/Preferences/Macromedia/Flash Player/macromedia.com/support/flashplayer/sys/

I have no Macromedia folder and I can only find one Library folder. Is this right?

No, not right.

The ~ stands for your "Home" folder and is a shortcut for "Macintosh HD/Users/your users home folder"
/Library/ is the one at the root of the drive
~/Library/ is the one inside your home folder

And if you just deleted them from the Flash pref pane, then you just deleted them from your machine.
