    I formatted my computer. I backed up pretty much every file I needed... except for all my internet bookmarks. What a drag... :'(

    How many do you have? I've probably only got about 30 bookmarks total. Not all that bad to try and replace.

    Usually I just install on a blank hard drive then move over what I need, that way I don't lose anything. [​IMG] Then the old hard drive gets put on the shelf.

    I had a ton of pages bookmarked, like loads of recipes and other little random useful things. My most viewed pages are easy to re-bookmark though: Gmail and GBAtemp. [​IMG]

    I would be scoping out unformat type utils about this time...
    .. if it's worth 80 bucks to you, there's this (GetDataBack).
    Linux freaks around here might be able to take you through running some opensource stuff from a live CD or something.
    Good luck, and if nothing works.. well, just consider it a purge, and start again.

    Ya it's not a huge deal. Just an inconvenience.
