I Thought I Saved My Profile on Drive D:\, Reformatted Drive C:\ But I Can't Get My Profile!

more options

Okay, I "saved" (I thought) my whole Firefox profile to a backup drive. Then I reformatted my C:\ drive, installed the latest version of Firefox, and read the Mozilla FAQs and cannot get my profile back. I'd be happy just with my bookmarks if nothing else. I've copied and pasted, I've created new Firefox profiles (with the Profile Manager), nothing seems to work. Can someone walk me through this without referring me to FAQs I've already read? Thank you in advance, I'm really desperate to recover my bookmarks, they are almost all work-related.

Did you save your Profile folder, or not?

What are the names of the folders and files that you did save?
