Where are processes saved/stored?

Wed Jul 13, 2016 12:41 am

I just had a reboot after a power failure and not only is the Process I was working on missing, but so are several I've created in the past few weeks.

I have twice-a-day tape backups of this entire Mac and also Time Machine of my home directory, so even a cache or temp file I can restore from would help.

Processes are transient, saved only with a factory file. The working space is saved when you close the program and loaded when you open it from a file called temp.factory. If you're only saving things as processes, they aren't going to come back if they're not there now.

Profiles are saved, and can be found in a plist file somewhere in the OSX version of AppData.
