I've overwritten the edit\color settings - custom file and would like to re-instal my backup. Except I don't know where to look for it, or its name(!)
It's on a PC.
Anyone help?

Chris, right now I am away from my own computer (and CS3)- I will look around for that location Sun night or Mon morning when I get back.

What Windows are you using? (This will make a difference, probably, as to where things are located). I am on a Vista PC- with Vista, a lot of stuff lands in the AppData>Roaming folder. If you want to look there, you must make hidden folders 'visible'- AppData is normally an invisible folder. I always leave mine visible, and in my nightly GenieBackup save, I save the contents of AppData along with everything else.

In the meantime, you might want to post on the Layers forum (under the Photoshop section)- lots of Ps savvy folks there:

Thanks for the concern. I've found it and restored it. I did a Windows File Manager serach on all files changed "today" and it was listed.
noted the position of the file, then restored by overwriting from by back up.
Think outside the box.
Again Thanks
