I've lost a folder [????] In my bookmark bar and want to find it in my back-up but I need to know what and where.

 

Thanks,

    Quit Safari. Disable Safari synchronization in iCloud, if applicable.

     

    Hold down the option key and select Go Go to Folder from the Finder menu bar. Copy the following line into the text box that opens, then press return:

     

    ~/Library/Safari/Bookmarks.plist

     

    Restore the selected file from a backup.
