-- specifically, samples/kits I've named and added to my User folder in the Load tab. I migrated to another computer, and while I've saved (I believe) everything on another drive, I can't find the content...any ideas? I've read the manual to no avail (to my eyes).

Aside from wherever you installed the core library, there's an XO folder in My Documents that seems to have presets and playlists in it (if you're Windows).

Thanks for the suggestion - I am on a Mac, and there is no XO folder in my documents or even under Application Support (although there is within the AS folder of my "new" computer, but it doesn't have a "presets" folder or anything that lists the stock presets). It's not that big a deal. I can always recreate the kits that I loaded up.

Can't say much about Mac, but as noiseboyuk said, on windows it's in my documents/XLN XO, thus I would look for the Mac equivalent folder. In my XLN XO folder, there is no "presets" folder either, and factory kits are not stocked there (at least I don't see them). Yet my custom kits (those I can see under "User playlists" in XO) are saved there, in the root folder (there are 2 other folders : Data and Settings). As for the samples, I'm not sure where they're stored. If they're from XO's stock library, I suspect they're in the "Data" folder (there's a 226mb file called "samples" in there). If they're from you're own collection, only you can know it :)
