I recently upgraded to IE8 and was previously able to Export my Favorites dozens of times, and would name it simply "mybookmarks-Month,Year" in IE7. I have spent 10 hours trying to find an answer as to why I receive the error message that "Some files were not exported successfully" and also a red X next to the word "Favorites". Others have this problem according to other web sites. Microsoft engineers have provided no assistance to any of us. I have dozens of folders (in IE7 the bookmark.htm was around 160 kb)in my bookmarks, yet can only save 8 folders now in IE8 and the bookmark.htm file is only 26 kb. In IE7 I was able to save my bookmark.htm file to ANY location on my hard drive and was able to rename it to ANY file I chose, as I said earlier I had probably a dozen bookmark files, for instance:
One microsoft engineer stated that IE8 wants to see the default path of something like C:\DocumentsandSettings\Username\bookmark.htm
however, he still doesn't understand the problem. As I said, I've saved bookmarks dozens of times over many years using IE5,IE6,IE7 but keep getting the error message when I try to export the favorites using IE8. If someone out there is using IE8, will you try to export your favorites and see if you get the same error message? Thanks in advance.
