Recover lost Bookmarks and BAT

My Mac has died but I can still access my files to save them but I can’t launch any apps.

Is there anyway I can locate the file associated with my Bookmarks so I can view them? Also my BAT tokens where sitting on the browser and not backed up to a wallet, is there anyway these are recoverable from data files?

Thanks in advance for any help and don’t make the same mistake I did by not taking a backup before updating my Mac with the latest Big Sur.

@Sim2,
Thank you for reaching out to us.
Unfortunately your BAT is lost since you it was not tied to a wallet.
For your bookmarks, you can find this file in:

~Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser/[Your profile name here]/Bookmarks

Note that if you have never changed/added additional browser profiles, the Your profile name here will be Default. You should be able to copy/paste/replace this file in the same place for your new Brave installation.

Thanks for the quick reply, I thought that may be the case with the BAT.

Thank you for your help, I will confirm once I’ve successfully set it up as someone else may find this useful.
