  1. Hi, I had a problem with 1 of my PC's so i deicded to format it. I backedup everything over 2 days and completely forgot to back up my favourites. Now i need access to a bookmark i had in Mozilla firefox and google chrome but after formating I remembered I forgot to back it up. Is there anyway of getting this back?? I heard it is possible but I have reinstalled all my software such as Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Flash & Corel Draw and heard that after applications are installed it aint likely to find old files.

    Thanks in advance

    If the files and programs installed are taking up the space where the bookmarks file used to be at, there is very little chance of recovery even if you decide to format and reinstall XP yet again.

    You may not be able to recover those favorites if you reformatted the drive they resided on.
