Here’s a good one: Hard drive crashed while updating system software and cannot boot. System recovery does not work in reinstalling operating system (disk is “locked”). In order to recover, I must reformat the drive in order to reinstall operating system . . . and my last time machine update was on January 1st (shame on me!)
I’m at the point now that I have the Hard Drive mounted as a read-only volume and am able to copy off anything I need to an external drive.
I upgraded to GarageSale 7 after my last back up and have done a considerable amount of work getting compliant with active content (I have over 6,000 listings) and was taking the time to “refresh” many of our listings.
Here is my question: Specifically what folders do I need to copy off of the old drive in order to be able to be up and running at my last saved state before the crash? The two folders that I know of and have copied off are:
[user] > Library > Application Support > GarageSale >
[user] > Library > Containers > com.iwascoding.garagesale7
Are there any others? Any hints to make the reinstall smoother? Should I move the folders in place before running GarageSale for the 1st time? Or should I run GarageSale, make sure the serial is all good, shut down, move the folders in place and then start up again?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
