My Netscape bookmarks have disappeared?  Anybody know why?

I can find some by going back and doing a system restore, but I had a much longer list...

Any hints will be much appreciated.

Hi jeffmel

Do a search for "Bookmarks.html" in search for files and folders.

If though for some reason your bookmarks.html was overwritten with a newer version, check for bookmarks.bak or bookmarks.sbds.bak

It should be found in C:\Documents and Settings\{your name}\Application Data\Netscape\Profiles\default

Thanks for the hint on looking for bookmarks.bak.  I have found a few files with this name, but can't open any of them (keep getting the error message that says that either the file type is not supported or the file has been corrupted).  Any further hints?

Thank you so much.

Since it's a text file, try opening the bookmarks.bak with Notepad. See what's in there. If all seems to be okay, save the file elsewhere, make sure Notepad saves as All Files, then give it the .html extension yourself.

I must say I am using Mozilla, so the next thing may be a bit different, just have a good rummaging around in your browser:
Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks-File->Open Bookmarks File. Go towards where you saved the bak file as new html file. That should do it.
Close Netscape, open it back up again and all your bookmarks should be back.

Thank you so, so much.  And let me know if you have a question about American cultural history, immigration, or popular music--those I know a little something about!!

Thanks for the offer, Jeff. Smiley

My wife-to-be has been an American for her past 41 years, she lives with me here in Holland, I only think I can ask for your help if we're not sure on what we're looking for. Wink
