where are adwords editor files stored on computer

Today I upgraded to Yosemite on my Mac.

The Adwords Editor from the previous version is blank and shows no tools.

 

How can I find the data that I had downloaded (from accounts I no longer have access to) and import into the new Adwords Editor?

 

Where are the files stored on a Mac?

 

Thanks!

Hi @Jon C,

 

I'm not a Mac user but I think this article might help you. If you can follow that filepath then I reckon everything else will be there also.

@ScottyD - This is a good thought. I followed it and it appears to be the path for the new version.

This would be easier if the old version 10.6.0 wasn't frozen on my system. Google, is there any way you can unfreeze these? The message I get when I open the old version supplies a link to the new that isn't even clickable. It appears that with this frozen I can't backup, can't export... basically can't do anything but search for files.

But I don't have any idea what file type it may be even... xml, txt, csv, dat? Anyone know?

Thanks,
Jon

Good morning.

 

I don't believe you'll be able to reload data from accounts you no longer have access to, unless you exported backups of the data before you upgraded.
