Default where are directory backup files on a mac? - 12-13-2006, 11:02 AM

Hey, I'm a newbie finishing a final project for my intro to programming course and my world crashed this morning from "drag code from a deleted method" bug. Alice threw an error on trying to save and shut down. Now I can't open my world, and my last manual backup was last night (before I did a lot more work on the world). I'm told Alice automatically saves 5 backup copies.

If I'm working on os X tiger, where are these backups?

Thanks so much.

vagrant,

Unfortunately, backups are not currently available in Mac Alice. We advise people to save as... under a new name every time a major change is introduced.

ie,

finalproject01.a2w
finalproject02.a2w
finalproject03.a2w
...
etc.

It's always a good practice to save important files this way, especially if frequent changes are made.

Please check your inbox for a pm.
