    I use favbackup which works great for Firefox. It also worked great for chrome till recently. However, with recent chrome versions, when I restore my acronis image (2-4 days), chrome resets to default with no bookmarks.
    Have to use favbackup again. Favbackup is a utility and not an installer.
    So I will give this a try. Basically I need to backup/restore my browser settings including tabs, passwords, bookmarks.

    Perhaps I am missing the point here, but whenever I reinstall Windows, and I do that a lot since I am in the insider program, I just install Chrome, sign in with my Google account, and everything is synced, including my bookmarks, passwords, extensions, everything.

    I've to second that! Bookmarks, no problems, Extensions, some will not taken over like the Torrent-Finder extension, Passwords, some, not all! Regarding the passwords, I do believe it's because on how the related apps handle the passwords on sudden security level of related apps/websites etc.!

    On my older Acer Aspire 4752G Laptop, I run the latest Windows 10 build on internal HDD. On a second HDD, put inside a special draw in from of the DVD Player, I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate.

    Now I get something I haven't seen on Windows 10, and that's the Battery Notification Icon in lower right with the Battery red crossed if connected to the PSU/Power. Hover the Mouse over it and I get: "Fully charged (100%), consider to replacing the Battery"! Restart the Laptop with Windows 10 and that red cross isn't there, neither the message!

    Anybody else seen such?

    I would say, in general a Drive Backup is more sufficient than a Partition Backup!

    Difference regarding Chrome, I don't think there is some!

    It may be I'm signing in to Chrome with my regular e-mail account instead of g-mail account.:confused:
