I don't know if bookmarks can be recovered. Are you just looking for some suggested links?

what do you mean by "Bookmark?"

What are you calling a "Bookmark?" That's normally a term used in web browsers.

If you are using the Firefox web browser, Firefox does make backups for you automatically.

Here is a link that shows you how to restore.

Assuming this is the GPS

Assuming this is the GPS you're referring to, don't try recreating the file. Instead, run Recuva and attempt to undelete it. Be aware however that even now it may be too late, depending on whether the file space allocated for the deleted CURRENT.GPX has been overwritten or not.

If the problem is with Firefox, you're probably screwed unless you set up Garmin Sync to maintain a backup of your links and your passwords.

nuked my bookmarks

Sorry - I was in a state of sleepy panic when I wrote that.

I erased my browser bookmarks/favorites accidentally. I was looking to re-create my list, which, in the end, I did when I remembered another device. (non-Windows terminology removed.)

Consider FavBackup

FavBackup is a simple solution for backing up and restoring various web browser settings and other data. It can also backup Portable versions of your favorite browsers too, but specify the profile before doing so.

FavBackup is portable so does not require installation and makes no changes to the registry.

If interested, go to

I have so many

i literally have hundreds and hundreds of Bookmarks/Favorites in my browsers. They are great for when you're bored and want to revisit sites you've saved, but in reality Google searches are so good now that you hardly even need to save favorites anymore.
