Question syncing calibre parameters between computers

I mostly use my desktop PC, but when travelling with my car for 2 weeks+ (once or twice a year), I take a portable PC. Upgrading every program and syncing is time consuming but by using only the portable for the last week or so before departure, I manage not to forget the most important steps.

Is there a file somewhere for Calibre and plugins parameters which I could copy from one PC to the other? There are so many that I tend to forget what modifications I have made from one year to the next.

The configuration folder Contents has all the PI and you User settings. (note: you may need to adjust the current Library choice on first restart. )

The Library folder: copy in its entirety. Replace...
Do not overlay/merge (by OS file manager): There will be orphans and the DB will need repairs

Thank you.

I can't find a plain content folder, but a content_ server. Would that be it?
C:\Program Files\Calibre2\resources\content_server

I always delete the old / copy the new for the Calibre library itself, since I've seen quickly that the sync program I use is not pratical for it.
