    Hi guys,

    Just did a clean install of Lion and am looking to recover my widgets on my dashboard from my time machine backup. I have the appropriate widget.plist file on my desktop recovered from my Snow Leopard backup. I just don't know where i'm supposed to put it in Lion. The file structure isn't the same...

    Any ideas?

    Did you try:

    ~/Library/Widgets

    That's where my iStatPro is.

    I think that is just where the actual widget itself is stored. I want to know where the data for widget settings is. I'm trying to restore sticky notes that I've written on SL.
