How are they stored on the thumbnail drive? As a folder with all the links inside ?

i think i see my problem after trying to answer your question.

in all my attempts to reconfigure my computer after the crash, i must have screwed up my favorites as the thumbnail only shows the favorites as a 1 kb shortcut.

i have an old floppy with my favorites..so i think i'll convert it to a cd as my computer has no floppy disk drive.

any other ideas???

If the favorites folder is contained on the floppy use can open windows explorer then copy psate the entire folder into favorites.
