    Where are the Google Bookmarks file located?

    I have need in making a backup disc for my Google Bookmarks. I am not talking about the "Favorites" that appears in the Windows Internet Explorer (I already have that file backed up on a disc). It is very ponderous in having to re-install the Google Bookmarks file whenever my PC "crashes". I would really appreciate any help. Thank you...

    Google bookmarks does not store a file locally. It is all tied in to your Google account. What do you mean, you have to reinstall the file whenever your PC crashes?

    Jonathan,

    Thanks for your reply. What I am trying to get some info is: How can I make a backup disc of Google's Bookmarks? In the past when my PC took a dive I lost all my bookmarks, and I had to frantically try to restore all I could remember. I have quite a few Web Sites included in the Bookmarks & I would hope I could make a backup disc of them as I did with Windows Internet Explorer.

    Perhaps you are confusing your browser's bookmarks with Google bookmarks. You should never lose your Google bookmarks, except for a server crash on Google's part. As for your browser's bookmarks, I do not know off the top of my head. What browser are you using?

    I am not confusing my browsers bookmarks with Google. I use Windows Internet Explorer 8, & the bookmarks are called "favorites" not "Bookmarks" as does Google. As I stated earlier I have made a backup disc for my IE "Favorites. I was in hopes there was an easy way to backup Googles "BOOKMARKS"? Thank you anyway for your answer.
