Default Bookmarks Disappeared

Good morning all,
I'm using Netscape Navigator 7.0 and last night I went to look for something in my bookmarks and they were all gone. I haven't done anything to my computer or had any major problems other than changing my D:\ drive to NTFS but D:\ is just my storage drive so I can't see how that would have done it.
Any ideas on how or where to find them?

Do a search on your computer for the bookmarks.... I dont know what file extention they use, but your browser might think that the default location for your bookmarks has been moved.....

see if you can create a new one, do a search for it, then it you will have the file extentions.....

if you are using win2k or XP 9maybe 98 too) you can search on file types. Look for internet shorcuts. That should find them for you if they are still around.

Found em!
They were in the C:\programfiles\netscape\users\Jimmy folder named bookmarks.htm. Went up the the "Bookmarks" at the top fo the page opened it, then manage bookmarks, then tools, then import and went to the file and bingo, they are back.
Thanks guys!
