I Lost My Favorites Folder


  • This was dumb of me, but oh well, now I need help!

    I have always stored my favorites folder on a different drive. This weekend I installed Vista and right clicked on my Favorites folder in my C:\Users\Dan directory and moved it to the D: drive where it has always been a direct subfolder. Well, apparently in Vista I should have moved it to D:\Favorites, because when I clicked on my favorites tab in IE7, I got the whole drive listing. And the link pointing to it in the Dan folder on the desktop is gone and replaced with a link to the drive.

    So I moved it again, and nothing happened, except now when I click on Favorites, nothing shows up at all. I click on Organize Favorites and nothing happens. I moved my real Favorites folder back to the Users directory on the C drive and still nothing.

    I even tried to import them. Even if I try to import one at a time, nothing.

    So how do I reassociate the Favorites folder (currently in the C:\Users\Dan folder) with IE7?

    Thanks in advance,
