Transfer bookmark and favicon file to new drive installation

Description of the issue:
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. I removed my old nvme drive and replaced with a new one and installed windows and brave. FORGOT to export thousands of bookmarks to html file. I know - idiot.
    I don’t want to reinstall old nvme drive just in case now it has been enabled to be read from my new computer something goes wrong!
  2. Have seen where the bookmarks file etc is in the old nvme drive and have seen that I should be able to copy this file and the favicon one to the new installation. Doesn’t (seem to) work.
  3. Is there a trick.

Expected result:
My old bookmarks visible
Brave Version( check About Brave):

Version 1.49.120 Chromium: 111.0.5563.64 (Official Build) (64-bit)
