Greetings. Windows 7. Had a crash 8/29/18, put my Carbonite backup on my new computer. Went to the folder that should have the places.sqlite file in it so I can copy it to my new Windows 10 machine and it is not there. Everything else is there but that file. Any idea where it could be?

In what folder did you look for that file?

Well, if you stopped the search at that level, it would normally be found a couple of layers deeper. eg C:\Users\david\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\RANDOMID.default\places.sqlite
