Is there a way to restore these favorites? They were not backed up in any way. Sytem restore to earlier date failed.

If you have used the synced Chrome with a Google account, then you just sign back in into Chrome with that account (which is recommended for this reason).

Also, to confirm you are referring to the Bookmark toolbar? if you go to the Bookmark Manager (Hold CTRL_SHIFT and press O) the bookmarks are not there?

only some are there
This doesn't sound good, I had the same problem with Edge (both are chromium based) and even restoring from exported HTML file didn't work.

I don't have sync but my recommendation is to do nothing and get your bookmarks on another computer!
Go to another computer and sign into browser then export bookmarks to file (if they're still there)

I always export my bookmarks to my external hdd. That way if something goes wrong i can always import them back to chrome or whatever browser im using.
