Where Is Information For Ripped CD's Stored

I've noticed cover art that I add, changes to track information, along with ratings, etc are saved somewhere. I'm just wanting to know what file or files hold this information so I can make a copy of them. I'm getting ready to reinstall Windows and instead of having to re-enter all that information again if I decide to rip a CD into a different format I could just install EZ CD Audio Converter and replace those files.

I will reply (subject to Poiko's clarification/comments if needed) :)

EZ CD keeps your ripped CD information (and other settings) on the local PC locally at:
C:\Users\??????????\AppData\Local\EZ CD Audio Converter\...

Specifically the ripped CD information stored on the local PC is in the sub-directory:
C:\Users\??????????\AppData\Local\EZ CD Audio Converter\cddb...

Copying everything from \EZ CD Audio Converter\ and below will save 'most' settings. I say 'most' because some settings (for example the CD drive speed setting, the character translation table, etc. ) are stored in the Windows registry (i.e. difficult to migrate from one PC to another).

Cheers, Andrew
