PC home is a Desktop running VISTA ultimate
Initially all transferred OK using VISTA transfer utility. Over about 6 months bookmarks are out of step (anybody know if there is an synch programme that can merge & avoid duplicate bookmarks?)
Anyway went to XP m/c and under IE6 used export favorites ... it creates a file of around 300kB .. called bookmark.htm
Moved this file to new machine .. then tried using IE7 import wizard ... import favorites, it accepts the file and advises it has imported favorites successfully .. then when you click 'finish' it then throws up error window "Not a valid bookmark file"
I have recreated the export file several times - same result ... tried importing form desktop, HDD, USB stick ... same result.
Noticed that favorites folder on either m/s is aprox 7.5MB ... removed Favorites from VISTA, but when I look under 'Favorites' in IE it still sees all the bookmarks, even though I have removed bookmark folder :-(
Tried replacing with favorite folder from XP m/c and it still sees old bookmarks.
Is this corruption on Vista m/s ... or a bug ?? how do I fix this ?
