Import rules to new Mac Wed Jul 29, 2020 10:59 am • by Tiff_Sunbacon
(I can't believe this hasn't been covered - but I have searched.)

I have a new MacBook Pro. I have downloaded Hazel and imported the license successfully. Now I need to import my rules. Help says use Import and locate the file where rules are stored. Not especially helpful. 1. What does it look like? 2. Where is it stored?

I have only been able to locate one hazelrules file but it's two years out of date. Where's the latest hazel rules file (I back up to Dropbox)

If you have backups, then follow this guide to restore your rules/settings: ... m-backups/

If you don't have backups and you exported your rules, create the folders and then drag the exported files one by one into the correct folder.
