Lost text widget contents after upgrading to 367; where were they?

I did a database backup before the upgrade. Did an auto upgrade (bad me!) and it trashed my entire theme install. Manually installed 367 but now all my text widgets are gone. Checked the backup and cannot find them. Lots of custom text in the sidebars via Text Widget and gone!

Where were they so I can make sure they are backed up next time?

thank you


p.s. just read on another forum that a WP export is NOT a full backup, and the options table is probably where this data "was". I have done further investigation, and found most of the lost data. It was not destroyed, although one important bit of data was somehow lost (seemingly).

All that info is in the database although I have never had a problem with widgets disappearing unless I went to a totally different theme.
