Hi fredfuks - Welcome to the MSZ Forum :)

If you have done a clean install of Windows, all of your presets would have been deleted, because they live in the Windows Registry.
You should have a done a backup of your Windows Registry Presets folder before you did the clean install.
You can also use the old Sony Preset Manager to backup Presets in the future!
I have an FAQ and download link for the old Sony preset manager here.
Install the preset manager and read the Help file - use this from now onward.

The location for Sound Forge presets kept changing with different versions of Sound Forge.
Luckily I also still have Sound Forge Pro 11 installed.

The main locations for presets are in the Windows Registry here:
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sony Media Software\Sound Forge\11.0\Presets
\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DirectShow\Presets\FX Packages

I just did some experiments, and most of my presets seem to be stored here:
Inside of the Presets folder will be lots of folders with random characters - in one of these folder will be your presets.

:idea: Remember to turn everything off at least once a week, including your brain, then sit somewhere quiet and just chill out.
Unplugging is the best way to find solutions to your problems. If you would like to share some love, post a customer testimonial or make a donation.
