    Edge Beta Crash, restoring previous saved Session_ and Tabs_


    So, as sometimes happens, my HP runs out of juice or something and Edge can't recover. Usually "Restore" will bring back everything, this time it didn't. Luckily OneTab has saved a bunch of previously used tabs so not a big deal, but I went and did some forensic snooping regardless.

    I'm on beta version 88.0.705.49

    I found in "%AppData%\Local\Microsoft\Edge Beta\User Data\Default" a directory named "Sessions". In there are 4 items, two starting with Session_xxxxxxxx and two with Tabs_xxxxxxxx. It's obvious by the size and date of the older ones that it's the previous session that I want that for whatever reason wasn't put back properly.

    I'm guessing there is some indicator saved somewhere to tell Edge which session to use. So, does anyone know how to manipulate things to point to the older one? It looks like Edge has changed from the old Recovery model.

    :)
