SmartLog Query "Favorites" Storage Location?

Does anyone happen to know where SmartLog Query Favorites are stored in R77.30? I am going to be upgrading our Primary Management Servers to R80.10 sometime this month and the question was raised as to whether these would be preserved during the migration? One user, in particular, has about 3 dozen saved / favorited queries that he relies on pretty heavily. 

Since R80.10 has Views, I'd eventually like to convert these favorites to Views, as they would be valuable to our whole group. But, in the meantime, if these queries aren't stored in the CP Database (I couldn't find them searching for them by name in GuiDbEdit), I'd like to know where they are stored so they hopefully somehow be preserved. 

Thanks in advance for any insight anyone has!

For the SmartView Tracker, custom log queries are stored on the SmartConsole system in the TrackerTree.C file as documented here:

For R77.30 SmartLog, favorite log queries are stored up on the SMS here:


Not sure if these will survive a SMS upgrade to R80+ and appear in the new SmartConsole or not; however this Bookmarks_Custom.xml file is included in a migrate export which is a good sign.

Just to close the loop on this, in case anyone else has the same concern, it appears these Custom Queries did survive the SMS upgrade to R80.10. That said, it was helpful to have an offline copy of the XML file just in case!
