Backing up book marks and password list

By slam5 ·
I am using win 2k pro and msie 6.0. I need to backup my book marks and password list. How do I do it without backing up the whole drive?

Backing up book marks and password list

To back up your bookmarks, export all of your favorites in IE. You can go to File, import\export, and choose export, choose Favorites, and the default path will be to your My Documents folder. Once the export is done, you can copy that file to diskette or a server drive for backup.

I am not too sure about your passwords list in Windows 2000. Windows 9x had the %username%.PWL files where Windows passwords were stored. I think they are in the SAM in Win2k, but on the local workstation for internet logging, you would have to keep a back up listing of those passwords, like a little black book.

Hope this helps.

Something else that I do is simply copy my Favorites folder to diskette or network drive so that if I have to rebuild a system or move my information to another machine, I just copy the Favorites folder right on top of the other one. This has worked even when going to different versions of IE or different OS's. It's just a folder with sub folders and sites.
Hope this helps.

You can use L0phtCrack to retrieve all your win2k passwords from the SAM file on your local computer or over a network.

Yeah, but the program is $ 1450. I just need it for my personal use. Nothing that fancy. I just need to back up the file so that if my system crash, I can just copy the file over and use it again.
