Hi,
where are located all the files needed to backup restore all the PF preferences? I'm struggling all the time to find them. I tried copying "~/Library/Application\ Support/Path\ Finder" and "~/Library/Preferences/com.cocoatech.PathFinder.plist" from my old mac to the new one but it does not seem to restore the preferences such as Favourites in the side bar.

thanks

    so obviously just after asking the question, I got it to work. I copied the above files in the terminal with PF closed. I believe my mistake was to copy while PF was running which I suppose overwrites the current preferences back

    cheers
