Where are EverSync for Chrome local bookmarks backup on filesystem ?

zled55it 2 years ago updated by kevin 5 days ago 2

I installed your EverSync extension on chrome, microsoft Edge chromium based, Google Chjrome.

I need to know where local backups are located on my windows 11 pc. I searched on browsers profile but without  success.

Is it possible to delete old backups ?

Did you use a local database like SQLite or similar ?

I simply made a backup and searched in "C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data" specifiying current date as search string (in my case 05/04/2022 (IT) but in english 04/05/2022 ecc.).

I then ordered for date.

As you can see ther are two files 00000035 and 00000034 with json like contents.

The file 00000034 contains an javascript  object array with bookmarks:

[{"id":"21062","title":"vaio Angela user leonardo danza","index":0,"type":"folder","date":1653031637411,"global_id":"nIK950XUovSHTdtcu9IoVF2JkkRdcPc6", "parent_id":"toolbar"}, ...]

The file 00000035  contains backup datetime and total bookmarks number;


So in my case this is the complete pathName of 00000035 file:

"C:\Users\MyUserName\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data\Default\File System\055\p\00\00000035"

and I suppose that I can delete bookmarks deleting  files in the above path without problems ....

This is useful for advanced users ad allow to manage bookmarks backups formatted in a well designed representation.
