No, the xml is in the main Mach folder, it will be called Mach3Mill.xml if using the standard mil profile. If you have made a custom profile then it will be the name of that.xml.
 You could probably use the backups by placing it in the Mach folder and then using the restore settings from Operator menu.

Probably because Mach somehow knows they were not the correct backup, ie they were pasted from another computer/install.
 Best thing to do is just use the real xml rather than try the backups.

Yes that would work fine, they are all located in C:\Mach3 and you need to place them in the same folder on the new computer. That is unless you have installed to a different directory than default, if you have done that then it is the main Mach3 folder in the location you have installed.
