I often reset my Mac to a clean state by reinstalling OS X. Unfortunately I do not have enough space or budget for a complete Time Machine backup.
Is there a way to grab my current settings and create a script that copies the following information:
- Common settings in OS X such as wallpaper, Dock, Language & Region, Keyboard, Network settings (several static IP settings as backup and for a NAS).
- Specific application settings such Android Studio and other App Store applications such as Divvy.
- Environment variables
Out of Scope:
- Backup/Restore customized contextual menu settings file under
Finder.app/Contents/Resources/Japanese.lproj/Localizable.strings(I learned how to change this setting on Super User, but if you have an idea on how to backup the setting, please let me know.)
