    I just had my hard drive replaced on my MacBook Pro. Before it crapped out on me I had everything backed up on my external hard drive. Now, all I really want from the external hard drive is all of the websites I had saved in Google Chrome. I tried but it seems like the options aren't specific enough to restore Chrome and not all the rest of the apps.

    Any thoughts?

    Do you know where Chrome stores its bookmarks file? If you can find it, restoring just that one file will do the trick. Note: You'll have to do this manually, without the help of the Time Machine interface or Migration Assistant.
