Looking for the Visual Studio 2003/5 system file that contains the data in my 'Toolbox'

Recently migrated from VS2003 to 2005 and copied and pasted each of my code snippets contained in the Toolbox from one to the other. Following a recent crash of 2005, I've lost all the entries in it's toolbox :-(

If possible, I want to locate the file to see if it is corrupted and repairable, or simply copy the same file in 2003 to 2005.

Thanks

I don't think you can repair that. If you have the possibility to copy all again from 2003 to 2005 don't loose time trying it.

OK.

With only able to copy one entry at a time (and I have loads) as far as I know, I just hoped copying the good file in 2003  to the same location in 2005 that this file will then be read by VS2005 and thus saving me the problem.

Looks like not.

Oh well. I'll keep this open for a bit to see if anyone else can identify it before awarding the points.
