    updated Win 10 to (build 10586) and lost half of my favorites


    Hi,
    This morning prior to going to church I received a notification that a major Update for my Windows 10 Home (x64-bit)was ready to download and install so I went ahead and installed (Build 10586).

    Everything seemed to go smoothly. However, I just realized I lost half of my Favorites. I have all my original Favorites from 'A' to 'M' but all the ones from 'N' to 'Z' are gone.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks and regards,

    Which browser ?
    Normally they are stored in C:/Users > (Your name) > Favorites.

    Morning CountMike,

    I am using Edge.

    My favorites were at the Folder you gave in your response. However, several that I had saved in the last week or two were missing. It is not the end of the world but I was just curious if updating Windows 10 yesterday morning could have caused it?

    Thanks and regards,

    CountMike,

    Yes ... but the only option it gave me was from Internet Explorer and the Favorites that I saved since installing Windows 10 weren't included.

    Thanks and regards,

    CountMike,

    Either could I but my Favorites are living proof it did ...lol However, it is not anything I am going to lose any sleep over. Since I first entered cyber space eons ago with Win95 I have come to accept that anything is possible when using computers.

    I do appreciate all your feedback. I hope you have a Happy New Year! :)

    Thanks and regards,

    I always keep backup of my favorites folder although I use Firefox 99% of the time. I have hundreds of bookmarks and would hate to loose them by accident.

    I also have backups on my external disks. Unfortunately I back up once a month and the last one was before originally installing Win 10 so my most recent Favorites aren't included ....lol

    Have a good day.

    Thanks and regards,
