Need To Restore Preferences from Backup File

My preferences seem to be broken and I had to create a new one.  If I restore last night's backjup ... As ... is there a file that I can copy to the current db?

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Oh, it was working fine yesterday, so the BU should be fine. - it just doesn't have today's data entry.

Preference files are not contained within a database backup.  You would have to use the File > Backup > Personal Files option to create a backup of the Preference files.

Awwww, I'm not sure I ever knew what "personal files" were before this.  Thanks Greg and have a great weekend.
