How do I recover google chome bookmarks after reinstalling Windows 7 ?

Dear and Darling Administators of that cute forum. Maybe there are some same-titled topics about the issue mentioned above but my case may be different than the rest of cases here.

Firstly I didnt have google chrome account and I forgot to save my google bookmarks before I format, reinstall windows 7 .

After the windows 7 finished installation I did a huge research over that topic but I couldnt find proper the solution.

My problem is

How to recover google chrome bookmarks if they are not transfered on the file Bookmarks.bak
in
C:\Users\gecici\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

Because that Bookmark.Bak file has same modification date with the file ''Bookmarks''

I send some pictures that you can have opinion about the trouble

The Windows.old folder may contain your bookmarks and you can copy them out. I do similar when deploying new PC's to users by copying their 'Favourites' across between PC's. Not sure where Chrome would hide them, I don't use it but a search in the Windows.old folder should find them.

Good luck.
