Favorites rerouted to external drive
I was backing up my bookmarks and somehow the favorites are now looking for
my external drive instead of the local folder.

How can I fix this?

Please state your IE version and full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3;
Vista x64 SP2) when posting to this newsgroup.

How did you "back up [your] bookmarks"?
