    Do a search on your userid for spartan.edb. That is where your favorites should be.

    That's because they are no longer saved there as I already posted.

    I'm afraid that you can no longer manually edit favorites in Microsoft Edge without breaking them. Instead, you could add or remove them.

    But I don't have it. Inside DBStore, there is only LogFiles and it is empty.

    David,

    Odd. Do you have any favorites added to Microsoft Edge yet?

    I think you should be looking inside of datastore not dbstore. Can you search your userid for Spartan.edb?

    Could be favorites left over from the old location, and none in the new yet.

    As a test, add a new favorite, then check to see if you have the spartan.edb file afterwards.

    Yes. It is under DataStore. But I am not able to open Spartan.elb. It asks me the usual .......How do you want to open this file?

    Favorites in Edge are no longer stored in HTML format. They are in a database now. I don't like it because I can't edit the spartan.edb file. Since Edge has no favorites backup built in it also takes another step to back up the favorites. I think Edge has a ways to go before it is in real production mode.

    Yes. Added another favorite and I can find spartan.edb but I also cannot open it.
