Windows 7: Where are my D-sidebar settings gone after a pc crash?

Where are my D-sidebar settings gone after a pc crash?


I use the very pleasant D-sidebar gadget on my pc for a couple of years now.
But after a PC crash due to power failure I lost all my settings - including my extensive NOTES.
I remember that after previous trouble I could find back the settings and the notes. Somewhere in an appdata folder.
This time not.

D-sidebar apparently is not available for any help (anymore?): the website is dead, emails remain unanswered.
I tried to reach a developer of the favorite skin I use, but could not reach him either.

Anyone here who uses D-sidebar and has answers?

Thanks for your help!

Hi Wim,

Take it you've not got a system image, looking back at your previous posts would have thought so.
ALL the data/programs will be there.
