Back up Settings

Now that I have Calibre .7.2 fulfilling my every need (well ebook wise anyway ) is there a way to back up my Preferences, particularly from the Conversion/Look & Feel section, other than copying and pasting my Extra CSS into Notepad and making note of my Font sizes etc?

I know if I uninstall and re-install it remembers all this info and wondered if there was just a file that could be backed up?

TIA

Go to Preferences | Advanced | Open calibre configuration directory. You should be in a folder called "calibre" - back up that whole folder. I'm assuming you already have metadata.db backed up - that's in your library, and you need it too.
