That depends on what version of Photo Mechanic you're running and what OS you're running Photo Mechanic on?

If you get 4.6.1 beta 6 from the Announcements section of the forums, it should get any missing settings from your earlier version of Photo Mechanic.  After that, the settings for Photo Mechanic are stored in the following location:

C:\Documents and Settings\<your login name>\Application Data\Camera Bits, Inc\Photo Mechanic\

Just backup that entire folder and you'll have all of your settings and snapshots backed up.
