Finding Account Location on a Mac

Under the Prefence tab Manager shows the path to our Data File.
I have had some experience on a PC and the path provided can be found however,
finding the file on a Machine the format provided … well I’m lost:-


I assume that this indicates that the file is on a server. In this case it would be Dropbox.
The file does not exist anywhere on drop box and in fact the last file update for any document
is the 7 days prior to my current updates on Manager.
When I initially open the file the company name displays with the word “rename” along side it
is that a problem? I have tried changing the name but still cannot locate the file.

The application data folder is not on a server. It is hidden, like many system and application files, on a Mac. You have two easy alternatives:

  1. Copy the path from the Preferences tab. In the Finder, select Go => Go to Folder…, paste the path into the window, and click Go. You will be taken to the application data folder.

  2. While viewing a Finder file search window, simultaneously press the keys Command + Shift + . (That’s a period.) This toggles hidden files on. You will be able to see the .local folder and files within it. The same key sequence toggles hidden files off when finished.
