Need help recovering bookmarks erased by mistake

I erased some bookmarks by mistake. How do I recover them?

To my knowledge, you can’t. Only way might be if you had a backup of the file where you could restore it. I mean, if you’re in Bookmarks Manager and delete you can hit Ctrl + Z and it will undo the action. That won’t work outside of that and it also won’t work once you leave the page.

Hello @Siana

if after you erased those bookmarks you did not reopened brave again (if you simple closed it without opened it then it’s fine)

go to your user based on your platform

then go to BraveSoftwareBrave-Browser Default (if you have only one profile which i assume then this is your profile folder)
you will find 2 files
Bookmarks rename this one to anything you like maybe add 1 at it’s end
Bookmarks.bak rename it to be like the old name of the above file so it be Bookmarks

then open brave and you will find your old bookmarks
notice if you added any new bookmarks after delete then those new one will not be there but they are on the old Bookmarks that you renamed

if you opened brave after delete those bookmark both files will be the same

another way but it harder that you install app that restore deleted files and scan the drive where you installed brave on and hope they bring you the old files

by the way those files can be opened with any text editor

hope that help and have a nice day :slight_smile:

Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. I will give it a go and see if I get them back. Blessings.

you very welcome @Siana :slight_smile:

You were right, it did not work. I’ll have to look through some podcasts to find out the information again. Have a beautiful day. Blessings.
