Where does Bridge CC store Favorites?

I'm running latest version of Bridge CC and moving from a Windows 7 PC to a Windows 10 PC. Most of my settings etc transfered, but not the Favorites. Before the move I backed up everything in this directory and all sub folders:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Bridge CC 2017

On the new PC I restored everything in that backup. Then used the Creative Cloud app to install Bridge. The app "sync'd" files. But not the Favorites. Thinking perhaps the app over wrote the Favorites I again restored from my backup - same results, I have everything except Favorites. BTW, "everything" includes my Collections, but not the Favorites.

I searched both old and new PCs (C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe) and below for the word Favorites and got no hits.

I fear I'll have to have both PCs side-by-side and recreate the Faves one-by-one. =:-O

Thanks in advance,

Frank

I decided a work-around is the best solution. I launched the old PC and wrote down (yes, paper and pen) the list of 25 or 30 favorites and recreated them on the new PC. Took maybe 10-15 minutes, far less time than trying to figure out the workings of a piece of software.

It appears to be stored in the preferences file, however I can’t find the actual preference file for Bridge (when prefs are reset favourites are lost).

The favorites are stored in the registry under:

Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Bridge CC 2018\Preferences

with the Key: Favorites
