Clean install on new Mac

Recommended Posts

I'm about to do a clean install on a new Mac. Is it advisable to transfer the preferences from the old to the new, and if so, is it just a matter of copying the old plist file? Or am  better off doing it manually?

If you're not syncing your preferences, you'll find your Alfred.alfredpreferences file in ~/Library/Application Support/Alfred 2/

 

Back up this whole file, then on your new Mac, quit Alfred, pop the prefs in the same location and relaunch. 

 

Alternatively, if you sync your preferences to Dropbox, you can just go to Alfred's Advanced preferences on your new Mac (once Dropbox has FULLY downloaded its files) and choose the same Alfred.alfredpreferences file :)

 

Cheers,

Vero
