I find that if I have not used AAD recently (no use in several weeks), then my previous options and source settings are lost. Settings only seem preserved if I use AAD frequently. I use Vista 32 bit OS.

I would prefer if all settings were preserved regardless of how often I use AAD. Not a big deal since settings are easy to redo, but if this is a simple fix it would be helpful. thanks!

    AAD does not delete settings under any circumstances except for uninstallation. Something else on your system must be deleting the settings files, perhaps some regularly scheduled clean-up utility or tool?

    The settings files are stored in %LOCALAPPDATA%\AlbumArtDownloader (on Vista, that resolves to C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\AlbumArtDownloader) - if that folder or the files in it are deleted, the AAD settings will be gone.
