How To Back up Firefox and Chrome data Data


Well we all surf the net and have tons of bookmarks . What happens if we have our pc formatted then its all a big problem . This post will tell you how to back up Chrome and Firefox data ..

How to Back Up in Chrome

Well It is Very Simple To take Backup of Your Bookmarks in Chrome without using any other 3rd Party Tool.

Taking Backup of All Bookmarks:

Steps:
1. Open Your Chrome and Make sure that Bookmark Bar is visible on the TOP
2. Now Right Click on Bar and select "Bookmark Manager". One Dialogbox will appear.
3. Next step is, In that new Dialogbox - you can see "Tool" menu. Click on it and select "Export Bookmark" (You can select the Parent Folder of the Bookmark To take all Backup)
4. Specify the Location.

End Result - You will get one HTML file with all Bookmarks are in it as a HTML links.

Other way is Go to:
C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default

And From here you will get - Bookmarks file. Where you will get everything.

Next Thing is PASSWORD:
I doubt this is possible. Because even if you will get the data it will be in different Format.

The BEST way is To Take the Backup of "C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome" entire folder. This will get you everything which includes Passwords also.

Above = replace your login user profile name

I hope this will help you.
