    Should be in your User folder, not positive on Edge, I don`t use it.

    Edge in Win10 1703 has the ability to export favorites to an HTML file, and to import favorites from such a file. You can back them up that way. (They also will probably magically appear by being synched from you Microsoft account, but I wouldn't trust that.) I don't know about the other stuff that you mention; I don't cache much.

    If you mean the folder below, then yes it contains all your data for Microsoft Edge.

    %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge_8wekyb3d8bbwe
