Mac OS 10.7- how to backup user library items

Using Mac OS 10.7, want to backup a few items located in the User>myname>library. Since I can't see the library folder in OS 10.7, how do I select the items within that I want to backup? Thanks


Re: Mac OS 10.7- how to backup user library items

Hi there,


The most common items that you may want to back up can be added with the backup sets. Things like Mail's email, Address Book, iCal stuff, Keychains, bookmarks, etc. Anything else, you can either add the Library folder to the Finder sidebar, then in Advanced under add File/Folder you should get a standard system file chooser which shows the Finder sidebar and you can click on that to be taken into the Library folder, or you can open up what you want to backup in Finder and drag and drop it into the Advanced view under the Back up section.


Thank you,
