If you're using Mac, instead of using the Backup & Restore panel you will find it much easier and quicker to use these two Mini-Apps. Just download them and move them to your Applications folder. When you run ButtonBar Backup it asks you to name your backup file. Simply type a filename and all your bookmarks will be backed up to a folder in you Documents folder. When you run ButtonBar Restore, first of all, if Safari is running it will quit then you will see a list of all your backups. Select the one you want to restore and click OK. Safari will re-open and all your bookmarks will be restored.
