Hp 4345 Job storage option is kept in which file on the local machine?

On a local machine under the printing preferences there is an option to use the "job storage mode" and to "make a job private" using a pin number. I need to write a script which collects information about which users have this setting selected on their printer.

Does anyone know if there is a registry entry or a specific file I can query with my script to see what users\machines have this option turned on?

any help would be greatly appreciated!

I can't tell you exactly, but there should be an entry in the registry somewhere under


Possibly under a subfolder of HP Print Settings

I know the 4345 uses the UDP, and that is where the settings for the UDP are stored in the registry.

Hope that helps.
