[quote=siria] Lesson no.1, as all users learn sooner or later: [b]Always keep a backup copy of your profile folder[/b] :cool: And make sure you also find it again in case of need, not that like me you think you backed it up just recently, then search like crazy but find only a 1 year old useless copy.... *blush* (my prob was actually another backup but the lesson is the same, ARGH) Just hope you may still find it in the recycle bin or perhaps in your user account, or manage to undelete it with guenters tips... Next time you install it, make sure you choose (again?) the "multi-user" version, then it puts the bookmarks in your user account, not inside the program folder, that greatly enhances the chances that they survive an accidental uninstallation. Or set the bookmark-location in the preferences to any other location you wish, perhaps to your documents or such. Hey, just found something: clicking Start/Run... and typing "explorer %appdata%" opens the user account directly (on XP at least) [quote=JamesD]I use favorites instead of bookmarks[/quote] Me too, so never had any problems of that kind :) No uninstaller of any other program is going to delete the IE Favorites folder unnoticed or otherwise, unless the computer admin deletes IE itself or a complete user account. Nor can things be overwritten accidentally, since every favorite has its own file, not all faves inside one big file like "bookmarks" and "Hotlist". So it doesn't matter if K-Meleon or another browser using the IE favorites was installed "portable" (with "bookmarks" inside program folder), or as multi-user version (with "bookmarks" in user appdata folder), the favorites are always safe, they are located elsewhere anyway :) Only additional macros necessary for comfortably adding new faves.[/quote]
