      PSE12 ACR

      Is there somewhere some documentation about using the option to save the ACR settings in a database rather than in xmp sidecar files ?

      I have found the location of the 'Database' file in C:/Users/[my name]/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/CameraRaw/


      Several questions:

      - how to ensure that the 'Database' is backed up with the built-in backup process in the Organizer ?

      - that Database seems to be independent of the catalogs

      - How is the Database updated if you move or rename files from the Organizer ?

      - What happens if you already have xmp sidecar files when you choose the option of the Database in the ACR dialog ?

      - If you upgrade catalogs from Elements to Lightroom, are the settings saved in the database recognized by Lightroom ?
