Import Data

Raindrop.io supports importing bookmarks from web browsers and services which support the Netscape Bookmark (HTML) format (and few other). Visit settings to use our import tool.

You can also export your Raindrop.io content in the same file format.

How to?#

  1. Grab export file. Check supported formats and limitations below
  2. Upload this file here
  3. Fine tune import settings (optional)
  4. Click Start import and wait until it completes
note

Do not close browser tab until import is complete

note

Bookmark thumbnails and search filters will be fetched shortly after import is complete. You will receive an email notification.

Supported Formats#

HTML#

Almost any service or browser can generate this file for you. Here how to get it from popular browsers and services:

CSV#

Before uploading you need to convert CSV file into format suitable for Raindrop.
Follow the instructions here

Pinterest#

Pinterest itself doesn't have any tools to export your data. But you can try to use great third-party app called Pinback that can help you download export file. Just follow instructions on Pinback site.

Settings#

Before you start import, please select how much data you want to transfer:

ModeDescription
Only new folders and bookmarksWhen you upload the same import file again but with new data, this mode will prevent uploading duplicates and ensure structure untouched, only new folders and bookmarks will be imported
Import allSelect this mode if you want to import everything as is (including duplicates)
Start from scratchThis mode is the best way to clean your account data completely and replace it with data from import file. Be sure if you already have any data in Raindrop it will be removed and replaced.

Limitations#

  • We support files up to 50Mb in size. If you have a larger file please use our optimization tool first, it can dramatically reduce file size without any data lose.
