Out of the blue, my SSD C: drive failed and I ended up with a new drive and an "out of the box" Windows 7, and I'm trying to reinstate the Squeezbox server as it was.

I have backups of all my drives, and have found the directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Squeezebox in the C: drive backup. So I know where I installed it.

Can I find anything that tells me about the settings? I know where my music library resides (not on the C: drive, so it survived). The controller tells me that I named my server "Swifty's".

Is there anything else I should recover from the wreckage before I reinstall the server?

The preferences and settings folders are usually in C:\ProgramData\Squeezebox.

I think they're in the ProgramData folder (don't have a Windows box with
me). Doesn't really matter: just search for a folder called Squeezebox,
and Explorer will find it for you ;-)
