    Hello All,
    We had a Macintosh hdd failure, although not a total failure, the Mac could not boot. We can, however, browse the drive still. We reinstalled the OS on a new SSD drive and reinstalled Fetch, but I cannot launch th eprogram to export the shortcuts. Is this data stored somehwre in an XML or plist file that I can grab off of the old hdd?

    Shortcuts are stored in a file named com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist in the Preferences folder inside your Library folder.

    Passwords are stored in the keychain. Keychain files are found in the Keychains folder inside your Library folder. For information on moving keychains see:
