1. In the folder Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS, which sub-folder and file contains preferences selected in Edit\Preferences?

2. In the event of a hard-drive failure, if Photoshop CS is installed in a replacement hard drive and the file from (1) above is inserted in the new sub-folder to Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS, will the preferences contained in this file be operative in the new drive?

Hi Jaystrouch,

Location of the Preferences File for Pgotoshop CS:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Adobe\Photoshop\8.0\Adobe Photoshop CS Settings\Adobe Photoshop CS Prefs.psp

Backing this filre up and placing it in the same position in a new installation of Photoshop should work, yep. Remember, this file only stores information about your Preferences as you set them under the Edit>Preferences menu. Any other settings like Colour Palettes or Workspaca settings is not saved here.

Good Vibes!
