The .IDS files are lists of the emails that have been listed/viewed by Poptray and have nothing to do with the settings. We've always recommended backing up the settings files as stated in this post viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2942 in case situations like this occurs.

Since you will have to resetup everything, I also strongly recommend moving to PoptrayU now since Poptray doesn't properly support Windows 7 and newer and is no longer being developed. It is basically the new version with many bug fixes addressed and some newer features added.
