Title

Restoring Missing Favorite Hosts

Post

     Something strange happened this morning and FileMaker Advanced 12 wouldn't launch. I'm on a Mac running OS X 10.9.1. I thought it might be a bad prefs file, so I removed some FileMaker prefs, including the "com.filemaker.client.advanced12.plist" file, from ~/Library/Preferences. Still no luck opening FileMaker. So I restarted and the problem went away.

     Predictably, my Favorite Hosts were all gone. That should be easy enough to restore from Time Machine backups. But it's not working. FileMaker seems to ignore any restored prefs files. I picked the necessary information out of a restored plist file by viewing it in a text editor, so I know the data is there.

     Are there any other files that must be restored in this case?
