    MS Edge Backups


    Has anyone else noticed Edge making it's own backup .html file now? Mine started 10/17/2017.

    Yes, my 'homebrew' backup batch file has just alerted me by finding and backing it up.

    In 1709 Edge appears to make a backup of your Favourites each time it's run. It seems to delete its previous backup and create a new folder (named to include the date it ran) called: MicrosoftEdgeBackups\backups\MicrosoftEdgeBackupYYYYMMDD and containing the file
    MicrosoftEdgeFavoritesBackup.html.

    Initially it just kept adding folders, I had quite a collection of them. But since I deleted the older ones it's just keeping the current one now.
