I'd like to save my OE 5.01 files and settings to use again after a clean install. Can anyone direct me to information regarding this issue. All I come up with is for OE 4.0 or 4.01. I'm quite sure 5.0 and 5.01 use a different method.

Thanks in advance.

fabianm, thanks for your input. Your solution worked.

I was performing a fresh install with lots of issues. All is well now. I just got around to completing this task, so sorry for the delay!
