Brave Bookmarks in a currupted HD (still reading) - How to Migrate

My HD was corrupted but still working in an external way.

Thanks a lot for help!

on my pc the bookmarks file is stored here:

Yes, in my new HD, too. However, I think the problem here is to access my profile in Users<user> in Old disk, unfortunately. The Windows never ends the verification after I clicked in the profile directory and confirm the intention to access it.

do you mean that when you double click on c:\windows\yourusername it never enters the directory?
what happens if you copy and paste the entire path to brave folder in the path bar?
if that doesn’t work maybe you can try chkdsk or some third party disk recovery program.
(to be safe I’d make an image of the entire disk before trying making modifications it)

If you can not access it, just make a Linux VM and connect it. Enter into the drive and find the directory.
If it’s there, you will be able to access it.
Move the contents in other location and access it from Windows machine.
