Is it possible to restore user customizations from a backup?

Our QlikView server needed to be rebuilt from an older backup, and in the process, all of the user customizations in the individual dashboards were lost. I have a backup of the server hard drive, but I am wondering:

a) is it possible to restore these customizations?

b) if so, what are the files and where should I look?

Thanks in advance!

The data for this is stored in the .share files. If you have backed these files up you will have the information up to the backup time.

Thanks Bill! I found all of our .SHARED files in Qliktech\QVWDocuments - I'll do some testing, but I'm pretty sure this is the solution.
