I screwed up royally. At some point in the past I allowed the Chrome browser to sync all data with my Google account not realizing that I was signed in under an email account I used for an old online college class project. So I always saw this little tab in the upper right corner where the minimize and close window buttons are with the team name from that class.
I tried to find out how to get rid of it and ended up, under settings/people/remove, clicking the remove button and permanently, apparently, deleted all bookmarks from Chrome. I signed in with my gmail address and got a new little tab with my name instead of the old class group, but I guess I should have imported the bookmarks to it first.
Anyone know of a way to recover this stuff? It ranges from annoying to significant. I have saved on a flash drive all important personal websites, financial and so forth, so I've been able to re-bookmark a lot of stuff. But there was a ton of things I had to lose.
