    Importing favorites from Internet Explorer to Edge misses many of them

    Imported my IE favorites into Edge, and Edge reported that it was successful.

    But now there appear to be two problems:

    1. I compare the Edge Favorites folder (...\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\Favorites) with the Internet Explorer Favorites folder, and find that 5 out of 89 folders are missing in Edge, and 34 of 65 Internet
    Shortcuts that were not in folders. If I open some of the folders in the Edge Favorites folder, I find that many of them are missing sub-folders and some of the Internet Shortcuts.

    2. When I click the Favorites icon in Edge, only about half of the favorites and favorite folders that made it into the Edge Favorites folder show up (yes, I scrolled down). I have the favorites sorted by name, and it only gets down to "H" for the favorites
    and "K" for the folders.

    What is the fix?

    Edge Favorites.

    You did a clean install... which deletes everything. Why would you think they were still there? Favorites are not synced in the cloud.

    If you don't have a backup, there's not much you can do.

    When you did the clean install, did you format your disk?

    There may still be a Windows.old directory, and that may still contain your favorites. However, favorites in Edge are stored in a database, not as a links on disk like in IE. So you will need to copy the database over your new one (if it exists).

    It would be located at:

    C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\Us er\Default\DataStore

    and the same in c:\windows.old\users
