    If you're talking about the Windows version, the data is in "%appdata%\OpenDNS Updater". You need to install the Updater from anew anyway, but may be able to use the data then on the new computer.

    "where I kept OpenDNS Updater always running."

    This is not possible with the OpenDNS Updater, because it runs interactively only and only when the installer (user) is logged on unless you performed some tweaks. If you want an Updater running all the time on a server, you had to use http://updater.marc-hoersken.de/ .  This runs as a Windows service and user independent.

    Thank you rotblitz. Both, copying the %appdata%\ subfolder, and also switching to Marcs Updater, worked well for me.

    The %appdata% subfolder content is relevant only with the OpenDNS Updater. You can safely delete the data. Marc's Updater has its own configuration and history data.
