lost all my bookmark

Post by am.super » Tue Mar 09, 2010 5:49 am

Please help me.

I don't know why I lost all my bookmarks. Unfortunately I did not export my bookmarks before and I have not on-line storage. I try to go to Start>Run and type "%appdata%/avant profiles/.default". I have just see the files called " bookmarks.dat.bak" ; "bookmarks.dat.vdt" and "bookmarks" (DAT files). How can I do to to recover them?

Thx in advance

That is very unusual. Well bookmarks.dat are your bookmarks (encrypted) and bookmarks.dat.bak is a backup copy. Try this:

- save the files to a backup folder
- delete all the files within "%appdata%\Avant Profiles\.default\Bookmarks\"
- copy only the saved bookmarks.dat file to the Bookmarks folder
- start Avant and check if the bookmarks are back

If that fails:

- delete all the files within "%appdata%\Avant Profiles\.default\Bookmarks\"
- copy only the saved bookmarks.dat.bak file to the Bookmarks folder
- rename the file to bookmarks.dat
- start Avant and check if the bookmarks are back

Did you import IE favourites at some point?
Are you sure that you are using bookmarks?
Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Miscellaneous >> Use IE Favourites as bookmarks >> Un-tick it

I try to import IE favourites before following your first step and I am sure using the bookmark.

My bookmark in Avant return to nothing after Pressing " Un-tick it"

Are you using the correct files? The ones from the old folder? Please post the bookmarks files here (or you can PM them to me) and I shall check them for you.
