Question Backup Explorer Fav's

I am backing up all the information on my laptop to perform a long overdue system restoration. Is there a way to backup all of my Favorites on Explorer and paste them on to my browser after I restore?

Send a message via MSN to office politics

on 2k/xp, they should be located in c:\documents and settings\*username*\favorites\

replace *username*

on 9x/me c:\windows\favorites

save all files in those dirs and paste them onto your new machine.

Esentially the same process:

Since the bookmark file is generally quite small, you can export it to disk via your browser. (File>Import/Export).
*\'Failure\' is not a four-letter word.
