Undelete bookmarks in Chromium browser

Problem

OMG, I deleted a bookmark/folder in Chromium! How can I get it back?

Undele

Calm down! Take a deep breath, open a terminal window and run:

cd ~/.config/chromium/Default && mv Bookmarks Bookmarks.old && mv Bookmarks.bak Bookmarks

Please note that this should be done before closing chromium more than twice. Otherwise the bookmarks will be gone forever. Also, in my experience, Chromium should be restarted after running the command for the bookmarks reappear.
