I cleaned with disk cleanup and defragmented, and now many of my
Bookmarks are changed, (missing),
and it seems the filing system is missing.

I thought that a systems restore might correct this but it didn't,
could this have been caused by defragmenting or what ?


Excuse me this may be a false alarm as I seem to have re-found my book marks, using the History Library, . . My next question is, . . Did I undo the defragmentation when I restored ?

I think what may have occurred is that during the defragmentation, I paused it then, I plugged

in my external HD to save some data, I later noticed that the defragmentation monitor was showing drive (E:), I may have inadvertently while the drive was in restarted the defragmenter.

In any case, I un plugged the Ex-HD, etc., do not exactly recall the sequence of events, but this may have been the factor, Other files, (folders on desk top etc.), being misplaced, may have been caused by this, I believe I have located all data, and am recovering.

Ff has a bookmark restore function.
Bookmarks/Organise Bookmarks/Import and Backup/Restore (choose one of the last 5 day's bookmarks).

These files should not be effected by fragmentation even if they are moved.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
