Chromesync is the most attractive feature on Chrome and we all love it. But what if you do not want to use it but still need to backup your bookmarks? Well, you can copy the “bookmarks” file from Chrome’s App data and backup it on Dropbox or a similar cloud service to get sync it elsewhere. Let me show you how.
The only thing involved here is navigating to the correct folder to find the “bookmarks” file to copy it. So, here is the location of this file on different operating systems.
C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default ( Replace the <USER> with your username. Here is the easiest way. Open up explorer and paste this on the addressbar after altering the username to show yours.
This directly takes you to the folder for the default user. Navigate to other folders if you need to copy bookmarks from other profiles.
Open the following
C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\
C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default Â (same as Windows 7)
