OSX - check for corrupt prefs and delete [with confirmation]


 / Published in: Bash
 

CD to the prefs folder and run this terminal command. it'll check for any corrupt prefs files and ask you if you want to delete them. [i think it only works with the new-style XML structured prefs files].

  1. rm -i `plutil -s *.plist | grep 'plist:' | sed 's/://g'`
