    try this:

    go to your Finder and click Command + Shift + L

    this should open a folder called Library correct ?

    I see 3 different folders.

    I checked all 3 & went into the "Bookmarkbackup" folders for all three & my latest backup's are from 2020 :/

    Which is strange cause I thought I had automatic backups turned on.

    Yes, but a whole years worth of them are still missing.

    It sucks, but I think I can live with it.

    Just don't understand how they can get deleted like that over night.

    Thank you for your help though!

    I really appreciate it!
