Export Addresses and Bookmarks

I’m starting to backup before updating system.

For saving Safari Bookmarks, there is a switch that can be turned on to display a Debug menu:

% defaults write com.apple.Safari IncludeDebugMenu 1

The Save folder in my Documents is part of my backup routine so that is where I export a copy of the bookmarks:

Safari > Debug > Export Bookmarks… -> Documents/Save/

Address Book makes it easier with a command in its File menu:

Address Book > File > Backup Database -> Documents/Save/
