      I’m not exactly sure how I managed to do it, but I accidentally deleted the “Imported from IE” folder. I use Chrome as my browser. I checked the recycle bin and no luck. I think it was File Explorer that helped me find the folder. But I could see it was not the current version. Would doing a System Restore to a few days ago help me get back the latest version of the favorites folder? Thanks in advance!

      Look through the settings in Chrome. You should be able to re-import the favorites from IE11.

      I thought of that but since I have made all the changes using the Chrome browser the re imported list would be out of date? I just was looking around the Chrome help site and someone actually had same situation as mine but was using Mozilla. Apparently it’s easier to restore using that as opposed to Chrome. Thanks for any advice!

      From what I’ve been able to find on Google is that if I had taken action right after it had happened I could have gotten it back. Since it’s too late for that, I was wondering if doing a system restore would get them back? Thanks!
