For those of you using Netvibes
To my horror yesterday – I found that all of my NetVibes folders had been blown away, and around 80 different feeds had been placed into a single tab called “Lost & found” after I created a new tab called “Funny!”.
It turns out that if you export an OPML File, even when the folders are missing, and then re-import, you can get your folders back (don’t click the “create new tab on import” checkbox, because then you’ll have 2 sets of everything). At least, my folders came back, YMMV.
I recommend saving an OPML file of your feeds anyway – I didn’t even think to do so until I was in a bad position, and only then did I realize how valuable that list was.
