Importing bookmarks and settings from old HD

Description of the issue:

Hi all - my PC died on me and l had to install Brave on a new PC. For the moment, I cannot clone the old drive to be my new startup drive. So I have access to the old files but I am using a new install of Brave. Is there any way to import bookmarks, extensions, settings from the old files?

Using Brave v 1.13.82 FYI


Close brave if opened and mount your old hard drive… go into the old hard drive’s user app data/BraveSoftware/default folder and copy the Bookmarks file to the new hard drive’s data/BraveSoftware/default folder, overwriting the existing Bookmarks file… Start brave software.

You can try copying over your Default folder - please see:
