File location of DVD Architect backgrounds?

Usually I create my entire DVD menu in Photoshop, but sometimes I just want to slap-on a background and do a simple text menu.
A couple of years ago I created a background of my own and added it to the "Backgrounds" set in DVD-A.

But I can't remember how I did it... specifically, I can't remember the file-location where the backgrounds are stored.
Somebody know that?
Thanks much...

In the Consumer version I don't think you can save backgrounds as backgrounds only as part of a theme. Their whereabouts will depend on your OS.

With Vista my themes are stored in subfolders in my user AppData/Roaming/Sony/DVD Architect Studio/5.0/Themes. There's also a UserThemes folder which just contains 'thm' files. My backgrounds are in my theme sub folders in the Themes folder. There is a theme subfolder for all my created themes in the Themes folder along with subfolders for the Sony provided themes.

You could try downloading the free software "everything" which searches your hard drive using keywords or parts of words you enter. It's very quick and I find it invaluable if I don't know where a file has ended up on my drive.

I couldn't live without Everything. Many times I have saved a file but not in the folder it should have been.
