    Where are the GADGETS stored?

    I'd like to include GADGETS in my backup, but can't find
    a folder by that name. Where are they stored?

    Thanks,
    Ike

    Hi Ike,

    Gadgets are usually in:
    C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets

    Sometimes in:
    C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Shared Gadgets
    &
    C:\Users\*USERNAME*\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets

    Hope that helps

    Perfect!

    Thanks,
