In our environment, we only use local profiles in Edge. The default path upon initial configuration on the client is “%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Edge Beta\User Data\Default”
We noticed that if the profile is removed via settings menu (e.g. for troubleshooting reasons) a new profile is created immediately and a new folder in "User Data" folder called "Profile 1" is created. After a second removal, a folder called "Profile 2" and so on.
On this on-prem local profile scenario, I would prefer to delete and recreate "Default" folder instead of creating a new folders.
We user UE-V to save some files from Edge, e.g. bookmarks. in the UE-V settings file we added the path to the default profile folder. In this case, we would need to add "Profile 1" up to "Profile 9999".
Could this behavior be changed?

Not the exact the same but quite similar problem here:

@stesch79 We configured https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/microsoft-edge-policies#configureonpremisesaccountautosi... to make default profile not removeable. But we have domain-joined computers/users only.

In my Eyes this popup is disgusting. It means my servicedesk will be flooded with hundreds of calls from helpless user who think they got hacked because they can see a popup they never have seen before.
We need a "User has to do nothing and not even think" solution

@stesch79 we ran into the same problem with VMware UEM for profile management solution we use.
Solution we use at our servicedesk:
Rename the Profile x directory to Default, then remove the file "Local State" and the let the user start Edge & log on. After that it is fixed.

@Henno_Keers @Joachim_T I think UE-V will never be a good solution for syncing this Edge profile stuff. Microsoft has confirmed that it will enable https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/?policy=RoamingProfileLocation for syncing Favorites/settings to a local UNC share. That's the solution I wait for.

@Thilo Langbein that is in relation with this https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-enterprise/policies/?policy=RoamingProfileSupportEnabled setting.
But... I have heard, that is the case with Google Chrome too, that enabling this setting, disables "Cloud sync" i.e. login on to your AAD account for synching of your Edge settings.
We found ourselves in the situation that we need both:
So a colleague of mine created a VMware UEM config that does that.
It is not pretty, but it does the job at the moment.

Is there any official statement from Microsoft regarding RoamingProfileLocation?
has been removed...
