Dreamweaver manage sites file

I'm on the latest version of Mac OS X

I have just started my adobe dreamweaver cs5 and all the websites I had saved have disappeared? i.e. The paths to the folders and the ftp details, etc.

I assume a file has got corrupt which holds these settings.

I had around 50 sites so it would take me quite a while to set up again.

I have time machine running for back ups, but I'm not sure what I need to restore?

Can you please help. Where is this file and what is it called?

for what it is worth, if you do have to rebuild all your ftp information, you may want to try it in a different program like filezilla. I had a similar issue to what you are having a long time ago and switched to filezilla and have been fine ever since.
