The impossible thing happened...

Yesterday I got the brilliant idea to format my laptop and reinstall Windows 7 from scratch. I've had a few problem last month, mostly due to upgrading the preinstalled Vista to Windows 7.
Said and done, I boldly finished the installation and thought everything was ok. I mean, my email is IMAP so all email are stored at my ISP, all my relevant documents are on another partition on the harddrive and so on...

But..!
Now I have noticed I forgot to save my Favorites Links.

So now I need your help. I can try to remember all my favorites (about 80 of them), or I can pledge to you to post interesting SQL-related blogs to me, so I can quickly check them and add them to my Favorites again.


Thank you

//Peter

Bookmark sync in Google's Chrome browser is just one more reason to switch to this vastly superior browser.

That stinks. I've been there. I hope you get back all the bookmarks you've lost.

And there's that privacy issue too. I am not sure I want Google to know my preferences.

Firefox has the Foxmarks plugin, and I'm sure there are others that do the same thing.

Another benefit of multiple partitions: move your My Documents folder to another drive so you can freely reformat C:. I also export my IE favorites before I do reformat/reinstall but in case I forget, it's on a separate drive.

I use a FF extension called FEBE and dropbox to backup bookmarks, FF extensions, etc. This also allows me to sync across several different environments.
