Hi there. I am currently working on backing up and formatting a drive for my family.

I Have their SATA HD running as a secondary drive on my personal PC. I am currently backing up important files. When it comes to backing up IE7 Favorites, how do i do it without using the wizard (because i am using the drive as a secondary drive...)

Should i browse the drive and find internet expolorer and try using the wizard from the secondary drive? or is there simply a bookmarks file i can just backup?

Any help much appreciated.

You can easily back up favorites.
Open up the drive the favorites are on.
It's been awhile since I've had a secondary drive, so I hope what I recall is correct.

If on the secondary drive, you see My Computer, open it up.
Then click on Documents and Settings.
You'll see each user account listed.
Open them up, there will be a favorites folder.

You can then highlight the folder, and on the left side of the page under File and Folder Tasks, click Copy.
The copy box will open, choose where you want the folder to be moved to, then click Copy.

If you can't find the Favorites, do a search for Favorites. Set the search parameter to search only the secondary drive.

Whatever method was used, I'm glad you got them backed up.
Have fun with the formatting.
