Thank you

Bruno, not withstanding what Bill has said, can you give us a bit of detail about what you were doing at the time that you lost the bulk of your bookmarks??

Hi, I do agree with what Bill has said; Sometimes we just cause ourselves to suffer unnecessary aggravations for reasons that are not always clear ;-(.

Also, my bookmarks may not have been that important to keep. Here is what I was doing: I was trying to do what Bill had suggested but before making a backup I successfully sorted my bookmarks then, trying to make that backup file, whoops, everything was gone without me realizing what really happened.
When I looked at bookmarks again I realized that I had lost most of them
except 10 of them..

Thank you both for trying to be helpful, but I think we might as well rest the case.

Look a file called bookmarks.bak. What is the size of that. If its large, then perhaps it contains all your old bookmarks. Just rename the file to bookmarks-bak.html and see if you can open it with the bookmark manager under File, Open

In addition to those advices which I hope will help you, I suggest running chkdsk on the partition that holds your profile. If any error is found, choose "do not delete" what ever is found if you have the option and using a file manager, check the contents of the recovered file fragments. It is usually pointless but ...

In addition to backups, which are indispensible (consider automating the process via a utility so that you have a daily backup of main files and keep a full backup of your profile), I suggest checking partitions on a regular basis for file and surface errors.
