Ok I have some passwords that are saved in my current system. I lost where those pins are (paper work misplaced) and I would need to go and send away for new ones. Which will take a real long time. I am putting a new hard drive into my laptop. I don't need to wipe the old drive at first. Where would I find the files to copy onto my new install if I use an external enclosure to pull files. The pin is inside my Google Chrome browser. This is not the Chromium. But the real Google Chrome version. I am not looking for the pin number, just the file that holds the saved passwords and such so I can just copy and replace it in my new install.

Thanks
