How do I identify the file that is used for a Form's background image?

In Microsoft Visual Basic .NET, there is a background property for a Form. In an existing project the property can, of course, already be set to an image. If you reset the background property, there is no background. If you want to regain that background property you have to reload that image into the background. How do I identify the file that is used for that image?
There is no file associated with the BackgroundImage property. It's a System.Drawing.Image type. What you'll need to do is store the BackgroundImage into a System.Drawing.Image variable so you can restore it later.
