Date of clone? 

  • Posted: 10 July 2013 04:58 PM

    Hi All
    I have a number of clones of my Mac Pro and I lose track of which one is the most recent (moron that I am!).

    Is there a way to see the date of when that clone was made/copied? Otherwise a way to see which is the most recent clone?
    best regards,
    Felix

    Hi Felix – you could try just looking at a File > Get Info of the disk to see if that indicates a modification date. Otherwise you might be digging deeper into files to see. I know the Finder’s preferences are updated pretty regularly, so looking at the modification date of /Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist should tell you.

    OMG! How could I have been such an idiot?! Yes just clicking on the get info revealed the dates of the backups! Perfect!
    Much appreciated
