Upgraded to Win 7 pro

Have recently upgraded to windows 7 pro on a nice new 1TB hard drive. I have removed the previously installed win xp drive, and that is now in an external caddy.

I have been in the pricess of moving the files from the xp drive to the win7 drive. I forgto to backup my IE8 bookmarks before the switch over, and have tried to find the actual bookmark links via windows explorer but can't find them.

Any idea on where they may be?

I have tried looking in dos and setting\users\favourites...but the bookmarks are not in there.

Upgraded from 32 bit to 64 bit
I just completed this process and thought I would post my experience doing this. My original install was an upgrade from xp to 7 home premium 32 bit.
