Crashed computer / site manager recovery?

#1 Post by JonesMan3000 » 2021-02-05 16:44

My laptop crashed recently (Mac), and while I do have a Time Machine backup of my computer, it wouldn't restore, so I had to complete a fresh install of my OS. Because of this, I was not able to restore my FileZilla site manager and have subsequently lost access to all my FileZilla sites. However, I can access the Time Machine backup drive and see all my files, but is there a way to recover the sitemanager.xml from the Time Machine backup? Thanks for your help.

The old FileZilla configuration (including sitemanager.xml) is stored in ~/.config/filezilla, with ~ being your former user directory.
