Default Migrate Prime95

I just did a clean install of a new OS and I had Prime95 running, i backed up all the documents in the Prime95 folder. which files do I need to migrate to the new folder to have Prime95 pick up where it left off (worktodo, results...)?

If I am not mistaken, and you did a clean install and did not download a new instance of Prime95, I would just copy-paste the old instance into your newly wiped hard drive and then make sure the program is installed- you may need to reinstall it. The previous work done should be saved (to within 30 minutes of wiping your disc). However, this may not be 100% correct but worked for me when I did something similar.

Copy everything except the Prime95.exe (but make a backup before doing so).
