Recover Garuda Theme after theme update

Today I've turn on the PC do to some college work and was greeted with a message such as "Theme update required. A copy of your previous theme will be kept in X folder". Then I pressed yes, cause I thought it would be a minor change.
I've tried to change Plasma Styles and other styles as indicated in other wikis here, but couldn't achieve my goals.
I also tried to enter last night's snapshot, but it keeps loading forever.
I can't find the folder where the previous theme is.

The change is the overall appearance.
This was my desktop last night
And this is my desktop now. (even the pinned software disappeared, although still installed. The icons are also much smaller and I can't find the previous background)

my garuda-inxi output is the following

Welcome :slight_smile:

Upon confirming the migration, previous configuration files are renamed to *.bak, in case you want to revert the changes. Otherwise, the migration can be started by accessing the tray menu of garuda-system-maintenance.


Oh, I understand now the migration is important. I changed the Dock size to 72, which was the main thing for me and everything else is fine. Thank you for your answer!
I've had a few other problems with Garuda, which I've been managing thanks to this forum, and it will be great if the migration can bring even more stability for that awesome distro!
