Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. I don't see ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/ on my backup, but it does have a folder called alfred-workflows in my home folder. Only has 1 of about 20 workflows though so I guessed I must have synced it there (don't recall). Oh well, guess I just have to rebuild. Thanks.
  2. I recently had to reformat my drive and drag and drop files from time machine (rather than do a restore per genius bar instructions). The problem is that I can't find Alfred.alfredpreferences in Application Support on time machine and would prefer not to have to recreate all my workflows. As I only have the one mbp, I was not syncing with dropbox. Am I out of luck or looking in the wrong place? Related question: I am now syncing with dropbox. Since setting up the sync, I have added two workflows but when I reveal the file in finder, the last modified date is before the time that I added the workflows. Is this working correctly?
  3. That's good to know. Let me ask a more specific question: Would it be possible for a workflow to install 3rd party software without me entering my admin password?
  4. That's what I thought. That's what I did. Hope I guessed right! Good to have my suspicions confirmed. Thanks for the quick response. Have you ever heard of any malicious code problems from workflows? I got most (if not all) from Packal or these forums.
  5. I'm a noob and loving Alfred 2. I've imported a bunch of workflows and am wondering if they pose any security risks. Can malware, viruses or keystroke loggers be added to my system by way of an imported workflow? Are workflows safe? Does running anti-virus on them before import do any good? What precautions does Alfred 2 take to make sure that no malevolent code gets added to my mac? Thanks for the app. It's really well done!
