extracting favourites from a failed windows installation.
Posted on 2014-10-28
We have a windows V7 pro workstation that had a faulty hard drive, which failed to boot.
We have replaced the drive, and installed a clean copy of windows V7 onto it.
The old installation had folder re direction enabled, and I can see a lot of data on the server under the users folder redirection folder. (but no favourites)
I cant seem to find the favourites, and there were quite a few, so it is quite an inconvenience not having them.
Can anyone advise where the favourites data is held, and how we go about getting them into our new installation of IE?
Both the failed drive and users redirected folders are accessible, but I just dont know where to look for them, and the best way to restore them. (The failed drive works, but just wont boot).
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
