    Microsoft Edge update deleted files


    For the past week every time I turn on my computer my shortcuts, pictures, and files are gone. They’re not in my recycle bin and I cant locate them with a search... they’re just gone.

    I have an offsite backup and have restored some of my pictures and replaced my shortcuts but every time I turn on my computer the files and shortcuts are gone again! Its like my computer updates every time I start my computer and deletes everything I just restored. How do I stop this from happening?

    :)

  4. Microsoft Edge update deleted files

    Microsoft EDGE

    Hi,

    There are several reasons why Microsoft Edge acts differently after the update. We suggest clearing the browsing history of the app as an initial troubleshooting step and check if the issue will be resolved.

    To do the procedure, follow these steps:

    • Click the Windows logo.
    • Press the Edge icon.
    • On the upper right, click on the three dots.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Under Clear browsing data, click Choose what to clear.
    • Press Clear

    Update us with the outcome so we can provide further assistance.
