View Full Version : How to backup IE5.5 Favourites?

05-10-2001, 02:52 PM
Can someone please tell me how to back up my IE 5.5 Favourites - that is, other than exporting them to a file? I want my Favourites included with all the other files when I do a complete backup, as I do with Netscape's bookmark.htm file. Does IE use a similar file, & if so, what is it & where will I find it? thanks

In the folder (depending on your version of windows)

C:\windows\profiles\<your logon name>

or C:\winnt\Profiles\<your logon name>

Or c:\Documents and Settings\<Your logon name>

Is a folder called favorites, which has all your links in it. Just backup that folder and you are all go.. ( nothing really wrong with exporting them to a file though, makes backups easier, but you will just have to remember to re-export them everytime you add or delete a link..)
