    Keep a copy of the actual favourites folder...

    edit: C:\Documents and Settings>*Your Profile Name*>Favourites

    Just keep a copy of that Favourites folder

    If you use MyIE2, you can export your favorites as a single HTML file, like Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox does automatically.
    You can import them just as easily. It's very handy.

    IE will export favorites to another browser or to a .htm file.

    IE>file>import and export

    In 1999 I started developing my own Desktop Search Engine.

    The only problem I had when changing computers was my favourites.
    I made a small change to the program to allow me to archive them
    just like I do Video, Music, Pics and text.

    When archiving pictures it takes 2 lines of text. The first line had the
    search information and the 2nd line had the path to the picture. So
    instead of loading the picture. If I found HTTP on the 2nd line I put
    the URL as the default in an input box. I copy and paste this into the
    browser.

    I can move my favourites to any computer anytime without disturbing
    the existing ones. Currently I have my "internet news", "TrapLine"
    and "other forum" postings archived. Random or Sequential access.
