I want to back-up all Bookmarks, cookies etc from Safari whilst my iMac goes away to Apple for repair.

 

I then want, should anything happen to them whilst it is away (unlikely, as it is a failed DVD drive, but one can't be too careful!) to be able to restore them at a later date.

 

How can I do this?

 

What file(s) do I need to copy to my external drive and how can I later restore all current bookmarks, settings, etc?

 

Is it just a case of copying, deleting and later restoring the plist file?

 

I've backed up most other important data and settings but my mind has gone inexplicably blank (don't you dare mention advanced age!) on Safari!

 

Any advice would be very much appreciated.
