Windows 7: Reformatted first partition -Chrome bookmarks didn't restore.

18 Feb 2018   #1

Reformatted first partition -Chrome bookmarks didn't restore.

I reformatted my computer and safely assumed all my google bookmarks had been sync'd to my google account since I'm always signed in on my laptop where all the bookmarks are created. After reformatting just my first partition and then downloading google chrome again I find that not all of my bookmarks have carried over. It appears that the bookmarks had been sync'd to my account up until a certain date (say maybe 3 months ago) but everything after that point is missing.

How do I fix this? It's also weird because it seems that my history that shows on my account is from my android/phone and none of the history from my actual laptop that I always use google on is showing up on the account. Is there some kind of bug whereby if you use your google account on your android as well as your laptop that it simply decides to sync/save your mobile history only? Completely ignoring the laptop's history? I would really love if I could actually get ALL my bookmarks back please?
