I use Google Chrome as my browser. I deleted Chrome cookies and there are some files that were stored in the cookies for a note taking web application I use. I want to restore the files that were stored in the cookies I deleted. How can I do that?

  • Do you have a Time Machine backup? – IconDaemon Mar 4 '19 at 0:02
  • I think so but i am not sure how to use it – x7R5fQ Mar 4 '19 at 0:05
  • In the setting, time machine is set to "Back Up automatically" – x7R5fQ Mar 4 '19 at 0:10

Use the Enter Time Machine command from the Time Machine menu to restore the folder ~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome from a Time Machine backup made before you deleted the cookies. Note: all changes to your Chrome settings and preferences will be reset to the time of the backup.

Make sure Chrome is not running.

Here's Apple's guide to restoring files with Time Machine.
