Desktop/AWN/COMPIZ Settings keep disapearing

I'm using Linux Minte Helena, and keep getting a recurring problem - my AWN/Compiz settings keep disappearing, and I have to keep doing settings like Desktop theme, AWN Applets, CompizConfig settings every so often.

Isn't there any file(s) which i can backup, so everytime this problem comes up I would just have to restore the same and avoid having to spend hours getting things back the way they looked?

The settings are stored in '~/.config/compiz' and '~/.config/awn'. You can backup/restore those two directories in the event of a problem. Normally, they don't get damaged, so you may want to file a bug report with your distribution.
