I forgot to change my options for xmp sidecar files in bridge last time I installed it. For a good two months it's been saving xmp data in the camera raw databse instead of in sidecar XMP files.
Now I need to move a whole bunch of raw files to a new computer and I don't want to lose all the camera raw adjustments. Is there a trick to write out the info it has in the databse to XMP files along with the corresponding raw files?
As a last resort, would it be possible to import the existing xmp data in the DB on computer 1 into a already existing DB on computer 2?
ACR has an Export Settings to XMP menu item in the menu available by clicking the arrow-and-three-lines icon at the right of the title area of the tabs in the right panel of ACR.
On my Windows 7 computer the camera-raw database file appears to be:
Europe, Middle East and Africa
