Saving your Favourites in order to reformatt pc

  carrol 11:21 04 Dec 2003

Can anyone help me please, I am reformatting my pc but I have hundreds .... well almost....of genealogy addresses that I could never find again or at least it would take me the 3 years it's already taken, is there an easy way of doing it, or will I just have to sit and copy them out.

go to c:\windows\favourties.

drag and drop the files to a floppy disk (1 will hold Thousands)

then when reinstalled drag and drop back.

(if not there then try

c:\my documents\LOG ON NAME\favorites

If you're talking about Internet favourites, open the Explorer Browser, click File then Export and follow the wizard's instructions to save your Explorer favourites/bookmarks in an easily importable file. If it's small enough you could email it to yourself and then download that file off the email server you use.

After having to re-format after a disaster I lost all my favourites and had to start again. I used file>export and then followed the instructions from the Wizard and put them on a floppy. I have in the past couple of weeks re-installed them onto a new XP machine from 98SE. HTH TR
