Does backing up the database also backup preferences?

    Yes. The vast majority of Preferences are stored in the database so they would get backed up.

    Most of the settings in Preferences are stored in the database, but some things like Alerts are stored in the registry and therefore are not included in the backup. Also, most interface adjustments like column width are stored in the registry.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Admin Arsenal

    If you want to explore for yourself you can use "C:\Program Files (x86)\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory\sqlite3.exe" to explore the database at "C:\ProgramData\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory\Database.db". Most of the items in Preferences are stored in the Settings table.

    SELECT * FROM Settings;

    Awesome. Thanks, guys. Just wanted to make sure I wouldn't lose all my preferences if something went wrong and I needed to reinstall and restore the DB from backup.
