Backing Up Favorites in IE7
I am going to have to reinstall a clean copy of Windows XP and IE7. I have
searched the MS site and can't seem to find any info about backing up my
favorites. Can anyone either direct me to the correct KB artilce on this
subject, if there is one or know how to back up the IE favorites folder.
Thanks for the help.

Ken

They are in a folder under your Windows account userprofile path.

%userprofile%\Favorites

So just copy the folder with its contents (shortcuts) to wherever you
want when formatting your hard drive.
