Hi folks,

I had created a lot of collections in MS Edge and then I had to re-install windows from scratch on the PC.  When I re-installed MS Edge it did not save my collections, although it did save all my favorites.  Yes, I did have sync turned on.  Is there a process to backup or sync collections and a way to restore all that content?

 

Thank you,

 

Miguel

@MiguelEgas2020Same here! I'm trying to see if I can uninstall Edge or install it as a side-by-side to see if it would help in the recovery of old collections. Have you tried it? Any luck?

 

edit: I just received the update myself even though I set it to warn me of any updates (which it didn't).
