So I am trying to backup my relay software (torrc file, relay 
fingerprint, etc) using my file backup application. However, there is a 

The macos operating system only allows accessing the /usr/local/, where 
tor is saved via the Go -> Go to folder option and does not allow it to 
be found via the finder no matter what, which my backup application 
(google backup and sync) requires.

I tried running defaults write com.apple.Finder AppleShowAllFiles true 
as both the normal and sudo user and restarted the computer and finder, 
and this did nothing.

Is it possible to move the tor files to a place where they would be 
accessible via the Finder or is there a known workaround for this?

The software version is tor on macos 10.13.6. Thanks very much.
