I had to wipe my Mac and reinstall everything.

I backed up my preset folders that were located in Library > Application Support > Adobe > Camera Raw > Settings 

1. There were lots of .dat files. Do I need these files copied over to the same location on my new installed Mac?

 

I'm using the latest version of Classic 10.4

Thanks in advance

No. I have deleted ALL the .DAT files in my {Settings} folder (using File Explorer) and Presets work OK. One new .DAT file is created.
