Where have my prefs gone ?

I turned on my pc today and all of my prefs have gone,It opened up as if i was doing so for the first time.
I have only been using Wavelab 10 (10.0.40) for a few weeks so I am tweaking the preferences as I go to ,I have tried to get it to start from the previous install but it still opens this fresh version.Can anyone help with this?.
Thanks in advance

Preferences are there: “\AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 10.0”
unless you have changed the location in the WaveLab preferences.
You could then try to erase this file before running WaveLab:
AppData\Roaming\Steinberg\WaveLab Pro 10.0\Startup.ini

A big tip is to back your preferences up from time to time.


Every time I change anything, I zip up a copy and throw it on Dropbox. This way I can add the updated prefs to my other computers where I use WaveLab, as well as have a backup for emergency cases, or if/when I get a new main computer.

Thanks for the advice and tips,I will let you know how it goes.

This worked,thanks for the advice,Can you tell me how to save where the prefs are saved?,as i do not know how the initial problem occurred.
