Restoring after a nuke and pave
on Jul 19, 2012 at 3:39:25 pm

Finally upgraded the OS on a couple of systems (hey, we've been busy). This was a full nuke and pave and installation from scratch of all software (doesn't take long because I keep all our Apps on an external drive as DMG files) The database is essentially fine but there's still some information missing, such as screen layouts, and the preference settings for paths to volumes for original media and proxies. is there some plist file (mac) that I can pull over from my full system backups to restore everything to the way I had it?
Thanks

Is this CatDV Server or Standalone?

In Server that should all be in your Settings from the Production Group.

In Standalone, technically the CatDV Preferences file(s) should have that. ~/Library/Preferences/CatDV Preferences is the path.

If you're missing things, that's gotta go the UK. It's beyond me.

workgroup server, so there's no Production Group (is there?)
I'll go look for the plist and see if that helps.

I pulled the old pref file from the time machine backup. Seems to have done the trick. Should probably note that somewhere. I did the same on the other machine.
Thanks for the help.
