Good evening.

 

I as unable to do the quick upgrade 10.4.11 -> 10.5, so I resorted to the "Archive and Install" option.

 

How do I restore the my preferences from various applications (Apple and non-Apple) for use in 10.5?

 

Thanks for your time.

    Hi Bruce,

     

    No idea why an A&I would interfere with any of that!???

     

    Do you have a Backup?

     

    What exact steps did you do/use?

    Thanks for your reply.

     

    I got the blue screen after trying the simple upgrade option, so I progressed to the A&I option (with "Preserve user and network settings" option checked).

     

    At the other end of the A&I, I have the new system installed with all applications, but none of the preferences, documents, pictures, or contents of other folders came out the other end.

     

    Luckily, I do have a backup.

     

    Where would I find the things like Safari bookmark list?

     

    Nice day here in VT.
