lost favourites

Morning. i have just tried my favourites and there are three items there where there are usually about twenty.i checked in my documents and i have a backup folder with them in. my question is there a way of getting them back into my favourites without doing it one at a time.

You can just copy all from the back up folder to your favourites folder in C>users>user name>favourites, or use the import, export function in IE. Go to file, in drop down menu select import export and it will guide you through it.

Third party programs aren't really necessary when you can just copy the favorites folder or do the export.

xmarks is very simple,
the beauty of xmarks is that if you want to use your favorites from a different location,town ,country etc then you just need to visit the xmarks site and log in to get your bookmarks.
there is not much to it,
install it for your browser /s and create an account.
you can also sync your bookmarks across different browsers, ie, if you install xmarks for internet explorer and firefox and chrome, whenever you use either browser you have the bookmarks list identical.

backing up your bookmarks without a third party is fine ,as long as you dont want to access them from elsewhere or are happy to carry a back up around should you do!
