Can you transfer cookies from failed computer XP Prof to new XP Prof or Win 7 for Chrome and Firefox, Internet Explorer
Posted on 2011-03-17
I have a WIndows XP Professional laptop that will not boot up due to hardware issue (not hard drive).
I will be recovering all user files using USB harnesss to access the hard drive.
The user wants all cookies recovered from current XP Pro laptop and wants to put on new Windows 7 (or possibly XP Prof. laptop).
The user mainly uses Google Chrome and Firefox and wants cookies recovered so they can put on new Windows 7 (or XP Prof laptop).
Can all the cookies and web passwords stored for browsers (Chrome, Firefox and Interent Explorer) be just copied to new computer and put in each browser (Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer) and the user will have all his web site passwords the same when he visits his web sites?
1) How can this be done? What are all the needed files to copy
Chomre, and XP I know cookies are stored in
c:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\LOcal Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data
I read for Internet Explorer you can not just copy the cookies etc to new computer since they use light encryption based on current user windows account and tie to guid etc..
Please provide answer for Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet explorer (all 3).
