Where is the folder with all the settings?

I upgraded to El Capitan (fresh install) but I didn’t do the backup of OF2.

Where can I find the files necessary to have my setup from Yosemite? (I need the path as I have the old drive’s backup)

Were you syncing with the sync server? If so, just set things up and sync and all your data will come down.


If you bought OmniFocus directly from Omni (not the Mac App Store), the main preferences file is at: ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2/Data/Library/Preferences/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2.plist

If you’re using the Mac App Store version, it’s slightly different: ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2.MacAppStore/Data/Library/Preferences/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2.plist

As for your data, it’s easier to sync it back down, if you were using a sync service. If not, or if you prefer to copy it:

Omni Store version: ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2/Data/Library/Application Support/OmniFocus/ (Your license file is also there.)

Mac App Store version: ~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniFocus2.MacAppStore/Data/Library/Application Support/OmniFocus/


Worked Like a charm @nostodnayr

Thank you! I don’t have to mess with icons from the scratch.
