Where is the Data on a Mac?


Recommended Posts

I have found where the Hour Guard Files are stored on a Mac


HD/Users/"Username"/Library/Application Support/HourGuard/


In this folder are:


Tasks Folder

Accounts Folder

Timesheets Folder


However the Timesheets Folder holds a neat trap for the unwary, as the .csv timesheets are stored in another folder called "Username"


So if you copy the HourGuard data folder from one Mac to another with the same "Username" you are fine, but change the "Username" and the Timesheets will disappear from view


Simple Fix

Create a Folder with your new "Username" and copy your files into it. Delete old "Username" folder


It worked for me


As usual Close the Application before messing with its innards and Back Up all data before toying with it.
