PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows xp
Problem Application Name & Version: Internet Explorer
Problem Hardware Make & Model: HP Pavilion 6645C
Error Messages:



I installed a new Hard Drive (Primary) and have the old one as the Slave.

I can't find my FAVORITES in the old HD. I think the new windows xp wrote over every old internet explorer folder.  There was another post similar to this one, http://www.mytechsupport.ca/index.php?option=com_smf&Itemid=42&topic=7832 but I followed that advice and did not resolve my problem.  My old hard drive had windows 98 and the new one has XP professional.

It will be awful if I've lost all my favorites!!!!
Can you help me figure this out?!

Thanks!
Cheryljoy

Hi Cheryljoy .. Smiley

This is the Location of the Favorites Folder in Win98:

D:\WINDOWS\Favorites (assuming that is the DRIVE LETTER for that HDD)

I too have Win98 on a 40GB HDD as SLAVE and WinXP Pro on a 200GB HDD as PRIMARY.
I just created a shortcut on my WinXP Desktop to it.

Can you find it in that Location?
