How to find old data in hard drive before reformating?

Post by brianhalfiron » Sat Oct 30, 2010 2:40 pm

I need to reformat my Mac hard drive and have backed everything onto an external HD (a complete copy). I will not be able to use time machine or anything to restore the hard drive because this is an upgrade from 10.4.10 - 10.6.3. I can not find a folder for iSMARTtrain anywhere? Where are the files stored so I can reimport them when I reformat the hard drive and install OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.3.? I keep searching for iSmarttrain in finder without any luck. Where is the folder with the data saved and what should I be looking to find (named)?

I have the same question..where is the data? I found something in library->application support->ismarttrain but that didn't work. I have formatted my hard drive and have a clone of it before the formatting....I'd love to get my data :)

If you haven't move the database to another location, it's in ~/Library/Application Support/iSMARTtrain/

Getting into that hidden library folder on my backup drive was a real pain! But it was there all right, I'm back in action. Thanks man!
