    Windows Edge Updated Lost all Favorites Data


    Edge was updated May 21, 2020 and all of my favorites data and bookmarks were lost. I can import from IE but I updated to Windows 10 and Edge a couple years ago so that is not the correct information. Where is the Edge information from this morning?

    :)
     

  2. Lost Favorites after upgrade

    Hi,

    It's really odd that your favorites in Edge disappeared after an update occurred, when all it has to do is to enhance the performance of your computer. However, we suggest that you check if it's still in the favorites folder on your computer. Follow these
    steps to locate the favorites folder:

    • Press the Windows icon + R on your keyboard, then type in "AppData".
    • Once done, navigate to this location, "Local\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\AC\MicrosoftEdge\User\Default\DataStore\Data\nouser1\120712-0049\Favorites".
    • If your favorites are still on the folder, import it to your Edge browser.

    Here's the link on how to
    import favorites in Microsoft Edge. On the drop down, choose "Import from a file".

    We're looking forward to your feedback.

    Lost edge favorites after yesterday's Win 10 update

    Hi Margot,

    To recover your Favorites in Microsoft Edge, you may refer to Vanessa Sohtun's post
    here. As for your second concern, we suggest checking if your System Restore is
    enabled because if System Restore is turned off, all your points get deleted. To check if System Restore is turned on, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Click Search/Cortana.
    • Type Create a restore point and then press Enter.
    • Check if the system protection is turned on or off.

    Any update is much appreciated.
