View Full Version : iWeb Domain backup

I am a dedicated SD user. A terrific tool - and Growl works just fine.
But I am taking a chance on this post, since a search didn't find anything on this subject. I recently started using iWeb - and assumed that my daily backup to an external drive (partitioned as Sooper and Dooper - what else?) would take iWeb and the critical Domain folder along for the ride. Wrong, apparently. A visit to an iWeb resource site alerted me to examine the copy on Sooper. No iWeb. This is not a complaint or whinge. :) I'm just curious. Is there any way to "include" these folders/files? The very resourceful person at the site (varkgirl.com) offered an Automator app. for the purpose - so I now have a backup - on Dooper. Where else? Any thoughts about this?
And if there is a thread on this topic, please redirect. Thanks.

Where exactly is this folder? If you're using "Backup - all files" it should definitely copy it, assuming it's on the source volume.

Thanks for the reply. Perhaps dementia is setting in as I approach 70! The file is in ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb. And another look at the copy this morning confirms that it is indeed there. How I missed it when checking yesterday is beyond me. :o Forgive me for the waste of your time on the reply.
Thanks again.

I don't think it's dementia, Barry. Finder sometimes doesn't refresh completely when it's not the one copying files -- it's likely you couldn't see it, even though it was there!
