Windows 7: Missing Favorites

Windows 7 upgraded from Vista 32bit
Missing Favorites

Re: O/S 7 IE10

Some of my favorites disappeared. This might have happened a few days ago, not sure, but they are gone. A lot of them were websites that I visited with the intent of going back to them for information and possible deletion. The only thing I did was go back about to 8/11 and do a restore but that didn't produce them.

You may be able to recover those website by viewing your History. History is one of the option tabs near your Favourites tab on Internet Explorer.
If you have cleared your History recently then they will have been deleted.

Did you actually look into your Favorites folder or only in IE.
