Were they "Internet Explorer Favourites" or "Avant Browser Bookmarks"?
Do you use the Online Storage feature of Avant?

Online storage allows you to save all of your settings including bookmarks onto the Avant Force server via a simple dialog, so that when you use Avant on another computer anywhere else (that has an internet connection) you can get all of your settings back just by logging on.

So, back to my question, bookmarks or favourites?

In Avant Browser Options>Miscellaneous>Use IE Favourites as bookmarks. Do you recall if you had checked/Ticked the box?

(Tools>Avant Browser Options>Miscellaneous>Use IE Favourites as bookmarks)

Hi Ian,
thank you for the answer. I have already checked this. IE favorites as a Bookmarks is clicked. But I still lack the favorites in the Avant browser.

If you un-tick the box (which switches from IE Favourites to Avant Bookmarks) - do they return?

Can l clarify a point here. With Avant as default browser.
If Miscelleneous is ticked l have all my Bookmarks showing with AB open.
If Mis is un-ticked l get very few showing. l`d have thought it would be the other way around.

Thank You.
Love,Light and Peace

Is there some sort of backup to save your favorites too, because my computers playing up at the moment and I don't want to lose them all if my computer fails.

If using Avant Bookmarks: File >> Export Bookmarks

To export IE Favourites you must do so from Internet Explorer using the Import/Export feature there.

kudos if his computer fails you can have it backed up 20 times it won't matter he would need to format. I keep saying that you must back up everything on to a blank cd like sites and passwords all that stuff. :)
