    What is synced to the cloud?


    Hello! This is my first proper post here, so please be gentle What is synced to the cloud? :). I am new to Win 10, coming from Win7.

    I made a backup "image" of my new Windows 10 instalation (with Acronis True Image), as soon as Windows was installed and activated, along with graphics drivers, mouse driver and software and windows updates. My thinking was that i could play around with Windows 10, and if i mess up, i can easily restore to that basic image i made to a fresh Windows.

    The first time i restored the image i noticed that some settings were carried over to my new "fresh" Windows 10 (first thing i noticed was dark theme). As the image was stored on an external HDD, that was only hooked up during imaging, there was no way that the image itself had been changed and so these settings must have been carried over during restoration of the image. I first assumed that it was Acronis that saved some settings, but after using a restore CD to restore the image this seemed unlikely. Then i thought the settings were stored somewhere on the HDD with the Win 10 on, but even after formatting, these changes still appeared.

    So i dug around and found that Windows 10 stores some settings in the cloud (here on Tenforums) and i presume that these setting are introduced as soon as I restore the image.

    I followed the above article to disable some syncing, but is that all? I seem to have found a lot of "syncing" options around in "settings".

  2. Sync settings-Delete personal Settings from the Cloud?

    Does that mean that even if Syncing is switched off in Account settings the Edge Favorites/Reading Lists will still be synced to the cloud.
    Also, Ive noticed that I don't have an option anymore to turn off Internet Explorer favorites Syncing under Account/Sync Your Settings. Internet Explorer used to be listed there and Syncing could be turned on and off with a toggle.
    There are times when cloud data corruption can mess up Syncing your favorites lists in Edge and Internet Explorer (duplicate entries etc) so you would need to stop them automatically syncing back to your account by disabling Syncing initially while you sorted your favorites out and turning syncing back on again.
    How do you do that firstly in the Edge browser and also in Internet Exporer if required?
