I MOVED THIS TO A MUCH SIMPLER THREAD NOW HERE:
I had a windows 8.1 PC crash, it wasn't getting internet no matter any basic fixes I tried, so I just did a 'Refresh Without Affecting Your Files' but then it froze at "Setting up a few more things".
I made some posts and was told it did something like ran out of space and just could not complete the refresh/install, it kept freezing %3 "Setting Up a Few More Things". It was only a 2450GB drive, would have been nice if it warned me or something.
I then bought a new 1TB SSD and Windows 10 and was able to get most of my stuff back but I can't find the Chrome bookmark file(s) in
There's not even a Google folder before there.
I have Show hidden folders and files enabled.
I did not install Chrome yet on this Windows 10 drive because that might conflict with the old copy of Chrome. In my bottom left Search bar I searched 'bookmark', then search by Document, but it finds nothing either.
Along the lines I may have deleted a chrome icon in the old drive, I'm not really sure. I did have Chrome installed on the new Windows 10 drive at the time and maybe it was conflicting or something but I'm not sure if I even deleted a Chrome icon or anything Chrome or Google related in the crashed drive.
