Greetings All,

this is kind of a Safari/Time Machine question.  I have done an erase/install on my MBA.  My problem is that so far I haven't been able to retrieve my Safari bookmarks.  I can locate the current file that has Safari's bookmarks in it but when I try to find the file in my Time Machine backup it's just a little different.  Instead of being a file that contains http icons of the bookmarks it is a file called bookmarks.plist and contains script or code that I can tell represents the bookmarks.  I'm assuming that these two files are not compatible so does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can harvest my old bookmarks?  Also I don't understand why in just a few days time the type of data changed. Does the other file exist and I just haven't found it yet?


This has been a very interesting project.  I have been really fortunate to have had some very talented people help me.  I'm almost done.


Any suggestions greatly appreciated.


Regards, Richard

Bookmarks.plist is the file you need.
