Backup Calibre conversion settings

Hi, this is probably a dumb question but I have to re-format my computer and I have no clue where the conversion settings are located? I'd like to save those to another drive so I don't have to re-enter all my settings again.

I'd appreciate any and all help,
Thanks!

Conversion settings are stored in the config directory. Go to Preferences->Advanced to see this directory. Per book settings are stored in the database file metadata.db

Is there a possibility to save a certain conversion setting? I have a weekly conversion to do and they all have a non-standard setting for structure detection. I would like to save these settings and reuse them at the next conversion.

I too, have wanted to "Borrow/Steal " settings or tags from another title.
