Saving Netscape Bookmarks to PC50

***The information contained in this page is only applicable to members of the LEPP community.***

If for some unknown reason your bookmarks have disappeared from your computer, contact Service. Your bookmarks may have been backed up onto tape and might be able to be restored. To guaranty the safety of your bookmarks, you should save them to your user directory on PC50, a.k.a. the 'Z' drive under 'My Computer'. Many users are currently saving them on their local computer and not on PC50, since this is the default for most browsers. In addition, if your bookmarks are on PC50, you will be able to logon to any PC in the LNSNTCAD domain and access your bookmarks.
Please refer to restoring lost bookmarks if you have already lost your bookmarks.
