After installing XP SP2, my operating system blew up. Had to reinstall and
lost all programs and data, but have a backup of my "Documents and Settings"
files from the night before the disaster. I now have reinstalled XP and SP2,
and am in the process of installing all new application software. I would
like to import my Favorite bookmarks from my previous IE 6.0 that I was using
on XP before it blew. How can I import?

Hi.
From wherever you have the backup stored, right click on your Favourites
file and Copy.
Open Windows Explorer > My Computer > C: > Documents abd Settings > Your
Username and right click on the Favourites entry there, then Paste. Your
saved Favourites should now be back in IE.

Hi,

You wouldn't import in this case, you would simply copy them back. Look in
the saved D & S folder under your old profile at the favorites folder.
