It's ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.versioner.perl.plist Here's how you prove it, and any other questions like this: 1/ In one Terminal window, run `sudo filebyproc.d | grep -i plist` 2/ In another Terminal window, run the defaults command in question 3/ In the original window, hit ctrl-C to cancel, then examine the results. Here's what filebyproc.d reported for me: $ sudo filebyproc.d | grep -i plist dtrace: script '/usr/bin/filebyproc.d' matched 3 probes 1 18510 open:entry backupd-helper /private/var/db/.TimeMachine.Results.plist dtrace: error on enabled probe ID 1 (ID 19296: syscall::open_nocancel:entry): invalid address (0x7fff5fc2dc7f) in action #2 at DIF offset 24 1 19296 open_nocancel:entry defaults /Users/cdevers/Library/Preferences/com.apple.versioner.perl.plist.GWghJmY 1 18510 open:entry mdworker /Users/cdevers/Library/Preferences/com.apple.versioner.perl.plist $ Tweak the grep filter as needed and you can use this trick to isolate all kinds of weird "what file is that damned thing looking at" type questions. -- Chris Devers
