Title: Trying to find my recipes
Post by: kw642 on October 10, 2019, 05:28:03 AM
My Macbook died last week so I went out and got a PC laptop.  I logged into Beersmith and none of my recipes were there.  Anyone know where I can find them?

Thanks

They were stored locally on your Macbook in the Documents/BeerSmith3 directory (or BeerSmith2 directory if you used that version).  The file is Recipe.bsmx if you can recover it somehow from your old hard drive.

Here's an article on working with BSMX files:

Thanks!  I was able to get into the Macbook one last time and get all my recipes.

I always do a back up onto a USB stick every once in a while. It's cheap insurance in case of some unforeseen disaster.
