I have three machines syncing Edge favorites.  One of these, is not getting new/updated favorites.   I can delete all of the 'old' favorites, restart and it repopulates with the same set of old favorites that none of my machines have.  

 

I've gone so far as to disable sync on all three machines, and this one machine keeps repopulating an old set of favorites as soon as sync is enabled.

Hi @brosselle 

Sync currently has many problems, better to keep it turned off for now in all channels

@HotCakeX Exactly. Beta has problem too. I have many duplicate bookmarks again. Back to Chrome until sync will be reliable.

Thanks for the replies.  At least I now it's not just me.  On every other front, devEdge is my default browser now.  It's just the syncing of favorites that is killing me.  I know it's still early, so I get that.

For now it's better to keep all your data (favorites/bookmarks, passwords, credit cards etc) in a stable browser like Google chrome and once everything is fine with Edge, import them back.

in case you get duplicates, use this extension to remove them
