Where did the old FileInfo panel save MRU values to?

I haven't done much work with metadata for quite a few years now but need to get back into it again. I can't remember how long ago this was, but might have been with Bridge CS3.

Before in Bridge I had a nice list of hierarchical keywords I had used previously and could just expand these and select the correct ones for the image(s) I needed to tag.

Similarly, in the FileInfo panel I had various metadata fields where you could select from a list of previously used values.

Where were these values saved to? I've a nasty feeling they weren't saved anywhere obvious and so I don't have a backup of them.

Similarly, where would these values be saved with the current version of Bridge?

Bridge 2024 stores MRU data in:

Windows: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\XMP\File Info

Mac (I think): /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Adobe/XMP/File Info

 

Keywords in Bridge 2024 are found in:

Windows: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Bridge 2024\Adobe Bridge Keywords.xml

Mac (I think): /Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Bridge 2024/Adobe Bridge Keywords.xml

 

I don't remember where CS3 stores this data, but I think it's in a similar location.

A quick update: I was thinking if the data was all lost I could write a script to go through all my photos and recreate the data. But upon looking at an image's XMP data I see the keywords are just stored as a bag, with no hierarchy and in a different format. Yet in the Bridge keywords panel it shows me the hierarchical keyword data for the image I was looking at:

 

hierarchical-keywords.png

 

So it seems this data is still stored somewhere, the question is where?

Never mind, the data is actually there in the XMP, just the FileInfo panel search is useless. So that is where my current installation of Bridge is getting the data from.

Still, the questions from my original post stand:

1) Where did Bridge circa CS3 save the MRU data and persistent hierarchical keywords list?

2) Where does the current Bridge save this data?
