I'm trying to recover a Windows system from backups and can't seem to find where Chrome saves its bookmarks.
Does anybody know where Chrome saves its bookmarks on Windows?

You can use the built-in Bookmark Manager by typing
in Chrome's address bar.
The bookmarks are stored in the "bookmarks" and the "Bookmarks.bak" files which are located in these locations:
In Windows XP and older versions:
%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default
In Windows Vista and newer versions:
You can open these files with notepad and see their content.
Please note that in Chrome's newer versions instead of the "Default" folder there will be a "Profile 1" folder.
