OSX: Where are the group preferences stored?

Postby americaskate » Mon Jan 31, 2011 5:55 pm

Hey,
I recently messed up a bit of my config files for transmission.
I have everything backed up using time machine, so I was able to restore some of the preferences.
I had organized my torrent files in groups but they arent showing up anymore (the files themselves are, but their group color isn't).
Anyone know where the correct file that holds the group colors is?
Thanks!

It looks like that info is stored in:

Code: Select all

~/Library/Preferences/org.m0k.transmission.plist

I don't see the groups in that file. I'm trying to find my groups as well, because the app crashes when I try deleting some criteria.

Per torrent, maybe in the .resume file?

org.m0k.transmission.plist has:
FilterGroup
GroupDicts
Groups

I don't have "Groups". From the looks of it, it looks like it's in GroupDicts, but unfortunately it doesn't look like it's user-editable in the plist itself.

This is likely occurring because macOS is caching the .plist file.

Trying first copying the .plist file:

Code: Select all

org.m0k.transmission.plist
into ~/Library/Preferences

Then run the following command from terminal:

Code: Select all

killall cfprefsd


Then launch Transmission.
