My 11y/o Win7 Pro x64 based water cooled monster finally failed taking the Intel DX79si m/b, the PNY Nvidea GTX980 and 2 of the 8 - 8gb mem sticks with it. The 16TB and 8TB add-in raid cards survived thank god. Also salvaged was the 250GB Samsung EVO SSD "C" drive. It was cloned to a duplicate the 1st day of every month. (No, it hasn't been overclocked in 8+ years, and even then I had the shut down temps set @ 50c).
New m/b, processor, video card, memory, and unfortunately, Win10 Pro x64. All do in Friday. :-(. This old (76) man is gonna have to learn all over again:-( ( 'cept this time it's air-cooled and VERY conservative :-) )
My problem is the several hundred bookmarks I had in Firefox (I'm a LONGTIME user. I DON'T want to loose them. I've got the salvaged "C" drive SSD in a mini-dock (D:/ in the laptop) and I'm looking at them on my laptop (also Win7 Pro x64 based) ALL the files appear to be there at the time of the failure. I've already copied a bunch of the files from it so I'm not shut off completely. When I try to use the Mozilla feature to transfer them, it appears it want's to re-install & rewrite Firefox on the D:/ drive. NOT good. Isn't there a single (even multiple) file(s) that can be copied to C:\ so I can disconnect the mini-dock and THEN "import" them?
THANK YOU !!!!
