Importing Favourites into Internet Explorer 9
I am trying to import my old Favourites folder from Mozilla into Internet Explorer 9.
The bookmarks are saved in a folder on a back-up drive.
In Internet Exlporer I go to:
File\ImportExport\Import from a file\Favourites\Browse
When I click onto the back-up folder I have called Favourites I cannot import its contents.
The Folder has subfolders in it. I cannot seem to pull all these folders and their contents into IE9.
Is there way to simply copy and paste the older folders into the IE9 Favourites folder. I can't find this folder in the new IE9 file structure.

There are a couple possibilities, although may be a strech.
You copied...or actually cut (for some reason) the files out of the moz favs folder...i think you used robocopy or a similar command, and depending on the options you used during the robocopy, you may or may not have altered the files/folders in ways that might affect their use by IE (i.e. the permissions may or may not have been maintained, etc.)
So do you still have mozilla installed, or on the computer it came from intact, just minus the favorits you cut out?
this would make the first method a lot easier to do... let me know
