Probably you have read How to backup Chrome Bookmarks automatically so in this post we are going to show you how to restore Google Chrome bookmarks if you are using Backupery for Chrome Bookmarks.
Before restoring Google Chrome bookmarks, close your Google Chrome browser. Then you need to perform the following easy steps:
1. Choose a snapshot of bookmarks that you wish to restore.
To see the list of available snapshots, open any Backupery for Chrome Bookmarks destination:
Each directory is a backup snapshot of your Google Chrome bookmarks.
2. Open the desired snapshot directory and you will see something like this:
Each directory name is a name of your Google Chrome profile. So, for example, if your have three profiles in your Google Chrome, say Peter, Jane and Derek, then you will see three folders: Peter, Jane and Derek. Each folder contains a snapshot of bookmarks file for the specific profile. That is Peter folder contains a snapshot of bookmarks from Peter profile, Jane folder contains a snapshot of bookmarks from Jane profile and so on. Remember the location of the snapshot file you wish to restore, we’ll need it a bit later.
3. Overwrite the current bookmarks file with the restored one.
Start Windows Explorer and paste the following string into its address bar, replacing “USERNAME” with the name of your Windows account:
Open the desired profile directory, say Profile 3. As you will see, among other files and directories there are two bookmarks files – Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak. You need to replace current “Bookmarks” file with the restored one. So, just rename Bookmarks to something like Bookmarks_old, then copy the backup file that you wish to restore to the folder and rename the file to Bookmarks.
Now your bookmarks are restored! You could launch and use your Google Chrome browser.
