I am familiar with Backup and Restore of all Bookmarks in CHROME. My issue is did not notice a very involved single folder is gone. And now months worth of additional cleanup and additions to current Bookmarks will be regressed if I go to an old complete backup just for this folder.

I create on a weekly basis a backup of the current Bookmarks. This folder is in a January backup: bookmarks_1_30_14 | Type = Chrome HTML Document

Any way to copy just this folder from the backup into the current Bookmarks CHROME is using?

I got my answer by a bit of thought. I ran the Bookmarks IMPORT. Opened the imported folder that is put at the bottom of the Bookmarks Bar list. The folder is named "Imported". Opened it, selected my missing folder, put it back where it belonged in my Bookmarks, deleted the balance of the imported folder named "Imported", and ran an EXPORT from Bookmarks to be sure I had a saved copy with all back to normal.

Download a copy of Iron Portable or Chromium (Depends on your OS)

Import your old bookmarks into it, and open bookmarks manager.

Highlight and copy the folder of bookmarks that you want. enter image description here

Open chrome's bookmarks manager, and paste that folder where you want it to go. enter image description here

Thank you for the reply G Koe. But I found a way myself before I read your reply. My way does not require a software download. – BJEvS Feb 21 '14 at 10:01
