I found something similar:

%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Google Desktop

The folder there is ca33c54794b5 and is 3.72 GB with 28 files.   This the one I should backup?

Try backing up the Google Desktop folder, so at this you have all the contents in the folder.

That worked.  Since I already had Google Desktop installed on the new laptop I had to rename the folder to the one that was set on the new laptop.  Everything seems to be working ok.  Thank you.
