Recover or Restore Accidently Deleted Bookmarks in Google Chrome
The other day while I was going through my bookmarks folder, I did a big mistake. I deleted my bookmarks folder, in a second I lost all my important bookmarks. I tried undo'ing it but it did'nt work. Unlike Mozilla and Internet Explorer, the bookmarks in Google chrome is maintained in a single file called Bookmark. If you have gone through the same thing I have a solution for you.
The problem in Google chrome bookmark is that the 'rename' option is right before the 'delete' option. Sometimes, you might click the delete option and then your bookmarks bid you a farewell. No option to recover them there.
There is a small editing which is required to recover your bookmakrs.
You should be able to see your hidden folder , so that you can see the Local settings folder.
For Xp user's, Go to : C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
For Vista user's, Go to : C:\Users\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
You can see a file named 'Bookmarks.bak' . May be you can make a backup copy of this folder for safety purpose, but it works out usually. Delete the file 'Bookmark' and rename the file 'Bookmarks.bak' to 'Bookmarks'.
This will solve your problem and you will be able to see your Bookmarks back into place.
The Best ways to secure the Bookmarks in Google Chrome are:
How To Sync Chrome Bookmarks Using Your Google Account
The bookmarks sync feature in Google Chrome backs up your browser bookmarks to your Google account and syncs them when you are on Chrome on a different computer.
Here’s a step by step guide to the entire process.
Click on the wrench icon given at the top right in your Google Chrome browser. Go to “Synchronize my bookmarks”.
In the dialog box that pops up, sign in with your Google account. After signing in, all the bookmarks will get transferred to Google’s servers.
If sync feature is already enabled with your current Google account on another computer, then it’ll prompt you to confirm that your existing online bookmarks will be merged with the bookmarks on the computer you are using. Click on “Merge and sync” button to merge and sync your bookmarks.
A success notification will appear. Click OK.
That’s it. The bookmarks are synchronized now. An easy way to get all your bookmarks on any computer connected to the internet within seconds.
Or You can use the best bookmarks extension that I would personally prefer is Xmarks Bookmarks Sync (Recommended)
