Brave Bookmarks Missing

I was, this past week, cleaning up old files on my MacBook Air. Later, when I reopened Brave, all of my bookmarks had gone missing. I’ve read that this has happened with Brave in the past, but the timing of the file cleanup and the bookmarks going missing tells me two two are related somehow.

After discovering that the bookmarks had gone missing, I restored all of the deleted files from my trash folder, but no luck in restoring the bookmarks themselves.

I’m hoping someone out there can help with this.

Thanks.
