Hello,

I like to do a clean install of Snow Leopard.
I have got a lot of loops for Garageband, how do i save them so i can just put them in after the clean install? I don't like to save everything only the Garageband stuff.

Grz, Steeviek

    Hello Steeviek ,
    the Loops are located in:
    Macintosh HD > Library> Application Support > Garageband>

    Hope that helps

    Can iJust copy the Garageband folder and put it back after a clean install?

    Or what do i need to do to keep all loops and stuff?

    Can i just copy that folder and replace it after a clean install?

    Or with what other method i can keep everything form Garageband?

    Excuse me for the double post there went something wrong.

    Hi Steeviek ,
    I would not do it like that.
    Just save this folder and after your new OS installation , drag and drop the loops back into garageband, or import them correctly into the app.
    Use the "old" folder only for backing/ or saving up the loops.

    But which folder is that exactly because i can't find any stuff in the Garageband folder?

    Hi Steeviek,
    on my machine its:

    Macintosh HD > Library> Application Support > Garageband> "here should be several folders with loops in it"

    But you can also look here:
    Macintosh HD >User> Library> Application Support > Garageband>

    Anyway , with a new install of garageband you will have all the loops of garageband in it.
    If you have added some loops on your own, don't you have a backup of these added loops/ or Jampacks?

    Maybe you can post in the Garageband Forum and ask for a better advice ...
