    I did a clean install of Leopard on the $139 200gb Hitachi 7200rpm ext HD that can be swapped out. (Fast stuff BTW)

    Anyhow, I got everything moved over except for Dashboard. I had some stuff there that would be nice to retrieve, especially in the Stickies widget.

    I looked around in the Library for preferences without any luck.

    Ideas?

    backup the apple.com.dashboard.plist file in ~/library/preferences and your widgets in ~/library/widgets and then restore them in leopard and your dashboard should look just like it did in tiger.
