In addition to backing up preferences and related files, Back up user prefs can also restore your system using either of the two sets of previously-saved preferences, provided that two sets exist within the user's Backup_preferences folder. This feature is a very more...

A new version has been posted to eliminate installer problems. The installation method has been changed to manual installation. If you have successfully installed v 4.4 using the installer, you do not need to download this version.

Please note: Back up user prefs 4.3.3 is not currently Tiger-compatible. Although I have officially ceased development on this application, because of popular demand I shall release a Tiger-compatible version in the near future. Please check this page for notification of a new version.

There was a corrupted file in the original distribution of v 4.3 which has now been corrected. Anyone who downloaded v 4.3 before 11:00 PM EDT on April 20th should download and install it again. Please accept my apologies!

Could you send more information to ? I need to know where during the execution of the program this error occurs, etc. in order to pin down the cause of your problem.

Beginning with v 4.2.5, it is no longer the case that "Back up user prefs" will run only on an administrator account (although an administrator account is still required to run "BUUP4.2.2_for_cron").

This wonderful application was invaluable in rebuilding my system when my hard drive died recently. I kiss the ground this generous developer walks on. Thank you so very much for such an easy to use tool, one that even THIS L8bloomer can understand.

This script just keeps getting better, and lemme tell ya, I had a problem and emailed the developer. He replied within just a couple hours. He even sent me a solution to my problem. This is all free of charge. I've NEVER seem this kind of "customer support" ANYWHERE.

This is definitely my favorite script of all AppleScripts.
