Google Chrome - lost favourites - 1 folder only

  collinsc 18:23 09 May 2015

Hi Turned on my Laptop today and i have one favourites folder missing (just the 1 i think). ive seen this is a common problem due to synching across diff devices. I only have this one device so cant see it being that?

I checked the recycle bin incase id accidentally deleted it - which im sure i didnt and it wasnt there (assuming deleted faves go to recycle!?)

advice appreciated many thanks

Could be many reasons. click here

Get into the habit of backing up Browser (and any e-mail client)profiles.

A Profile contains settings, bookmarks and extensions/plug-ins etc

hi thanks for that post ... ah yes, so i did back up the favourites about a month ago. so, how can i restore just that one folder...? as if i restore them all then theyll overwrite the bookmarks ive added since, right?

many thanks
