    How can I exclude mail from Time Machine backups?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    Mails are stored on ~/Library/Mail, being ~ your user folder. As you are running Snow Leopard, it's easy to exclude your mails from your Time Machine backup.
    Open System Preferences > Time Machine > Options, and add ~/Library/Mail to excluded items, so the next backup won't include mails. Note that you have to go to your user folder, in order to access to this directory

  • How can i recover mail from time machine

    i upgraded from lion to mountain lion few month ago. i have been backingup to time machine since day one.
    last week, formatted my mac, i tried to recover my mail by using time machine, it did not show up any date for recovery. 
    it there a way to import back these mail? or is there a way to recover it?

    Although you can restore messages from a Time Machine snapshot within the Mail application, it generally won't work with messages that were saved by an older version of Mail. In that case, you have to use an alternative method.
    Triple-click the line below to select it:
    Right-click or control-click the highlighted line and select
    Services ▹ Reveal
    from the contextual menu.* A Finder window should open with a folder selected. Inside that folder are subfolders representing your Mail accounts. The names refer to the email addresses you use. Decide which ones you want to restore messages from.
    Enter Time Machine and scroll back to the snapshot you want. Select the account folders you want and then select  Restore ... to... from the action menu (gear icon) in the toolbar of the snapshot window. Restore the folders to the Desktop, not to their original location.
    From the Mail menu bar, select
    File ▹ Import Mailboxes...
    Import from the mailboxes in the folders you restored to the Desktop. The imported messages will appear in a new mailbox. Move the ones you want to keep wherever you like and delete the rest. Then delete the folders on the Desktop.
    *If you don't see the contextual menu item, copy the selected text to the Clipboard (command-C). In the Finder, select
    Go ▹ Go to Folder...
    from the menu bar, paste into the box that opens (command-V). You won't see what you pasted because a line break is included. Press return.

  • Can't restore mail from Time Machine

    We had a power failure last night and when I finally restarted my iMac, I found 99% of my Inbox was gone.  When I attempted to restore it from Time Machine, I got the following notification:

    I have restored it before without this problem.  I would appreciate any assistance.

  • How can i retrieve bookmarks from time machine?

    Hello. I need major help. This past weekend, I had to wipe the HD on my Macbook Pro. I did have Time Machine backups at the time. Is there any way to retrieve my old Firefox bookmarks from Time Machine? Please help. I'm trying to recover more than two years of work. Please help! :-)

    You would have to find the previously used Firefox profile folder in the Time Machine backup.
    You can use this button to go to the currently used Firefox profile folder:
    *Help > Troubleshooting Information > Profile Directory: Show Folder (Linux: Open Directory; Mac: Show in Finder)
    The profile folder consists of a part with a random name and a trailing file extension part that shows in the Profile Manager.
    You need to go one level up and locate that folder in the time machine backup.
    */Users/<user>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile>/
    Then you need to transfer the places.sqlite file to the current profile folder or possibly use a JSON backup to restore the bookmarks.
    Make sure to remove other possible places.sqlite files (places.sqlite-shm and places.sqlite-wal in particular).

  • How can I restore iCal from time machine

    Hi can I restore the data from iCal from time machine?

    The data is in ~/Library/Calendars 
    The folders have gibberish names; you can't tell which folder is which calendar, so you probably need to restore the entire folder.
    But if you have your Calendars synched via iCloud, there may not be anything there, since iCloud is where the "real" data resides.

  • How do I restore mail from Time Machine after a clean Yosemite install?

    I've been having various performance issues with my iMac recently (wifi keeps dropping off, scan functionality on my multifunction printer stopped working, whole system periodically hangs) so decided to do a clean install of Yosemite. I also have a MacBook Air, also running Yosemite, and on which I have no issues with the wifi, printer or system performance.
    Before doing the clean install, I made sure I had a current Time Machine backup. The process appears to have worked so far, but I have run into an issue restoring my mail. I think it best if I describe how I have restored my documents and then I can show at what point I run into a problem.
    To restore documents, I opened Time Machine, used the keyboard shortcut command-shift-C to show the backups prior to the clean install, and then selected the documents I wanted to restore. This was simple and worked perfectly.
    To restore my mail, I opened Mail, selected 'Enter Time Machine' from the shortcut menu at the top of the screen and then used the keyboard shortcut command-shift-C to show the backups prior to the clean install. This is where I got stuck as command-shift-C is a default shortcut in Mail that shows the colours dialog box. Hence I have been unable to view the correct backup. The backup I want is listed on the right hand side of the screen in Time Machine, but I can't work out how to select it.
    I thought changing the shortcut in Mail might work, but I couldn't find a way to do that either since it is not listed in the Keyboard section of System Preferences.
    Any ideas gratefully received.

    Hey there,
    It sounds like you're still having trouble exposing the proper library folder. You can use the following terminal command to do it globally (this will show all hidden files)
    Open Terminal from your appliications folder and copy/paste this into it:
    defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE (press return)
    **After that last line you'll need to restart the finder so use:
    killall Finder (press return)
    Now if you enter Time Machine the correct Library should be visible. To re-hide your hidden files repeat the process above but replace TRUE with FALSE, then use the "killall Finder" again.
    I agree with the commenters above, you should restore the Mail library to the desktop and then re-import it to Mail. This is how I was instructed to solve this problem by Mac help, who I chatted with online for quite a while before they figured it out.
    Hope this helps
