Lost Favourites on IE7 - SOLVED - thanks Samuria

One of my PCs crashed the other day and had to get it rebuilt at great cost.  Got all the software backed up but unfortunately I lost all my IE7 favourites. 
Is it possible to import the list from another machine much the same as Foxmarks can synchronise bookmarks on Firefox ?
Thanks
Bob

I simply go to Documents & Settings then select the correct <user> account and copy the Favourites folder to a backup folder on another drive then copy it back when required. HTH.

In IE under file menu there is import and export which lets you transfer both favorites and cookies. On the other pc you use the same and import.

Thanks Samuria, worked a treat.  Problem SOLVED reported in line with your other posting Smiley
Judging by the number I imported from my other machine across the network I think it is time for a cull !
cheers
