Lost TOAD Settings during a bluescreen.

My machine blue-screened in the middle of a TOAD session and I have lost all of my connections, settings, etc.

Can I get them back?!?!

Thanks,

Tony

I found the user files at C: \ Users \ \ AppData \ Roaming \ Quest Software \ Toad For Oracle \ 11.0 \ UserFiles.

From this folder, I ran this simple one liner from a command line to output the contents to a .TXT file:

DIR /OD > C:\MyDataDir\Toad_UserConfiguration_Files.txt

Then I went one level deeper to: C:\Users<MyUsername>\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\11.0\User Files*GUISettings*

and ran this from a command line to create another TXT file of the contents of this folder:

DIR /OD > C:\MyDataDir\Toad_UserConfiguration_Files_GUISettings.txt

Save off these folders somewhere and re-load them should you need to re-install Toad.
