Description of the issue:
About 2 weeks ago I received a notice that Windows had expired (in 1968?). Maybe I received an old version of Windows when I purchased the laptop a few years ago? After I reactivated Windows, Brave does not recognize my bookmarks even though I can see the two files “bookmarks” and “bookmarks.bak” in the C:\Users.…\AppData\Local\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\User Data\Default folder. How can this issue be reproduced?
I have no idea.
Ability to see tabs and bookmarks as seen before the Windows reactivation and that are in the file bookmarks.
Two things going on. Whenever you see odd error messages around Epoch time (January 1, 1970), suspect that there is a problem with your systems CMOS battery. Check the battery and system time and make sure everything is good there.
Thank you so much. I had checked the date and time and no, I didn’t have an html file. Clearly I will make html backups in the future. The conversion to html worked immediately. Now I can see the Imported bookmarks. Again, thank you very much.
