    Andre, I have a feeling that the device backup doesn't show in OneDrive on Windows 10. I haven't seen anyone say that a backup exists there anyway. I know it used to in Windows8, 8.1

    Hi Ken, Ive used the import/export feature before..quite a while ago though. at that time I found that it left quite a few of my favourites behind. Several folder in my Edge favourites were missing when I imported them. Maybe the process works perfectly now. I haven't tried it for a while
    Not sure about devices won't show. Edge's settings and favorites syncing is a different thing to device backup. System syncing is tied to you digital account, not Onedrive.

    But there could be something else going on. One thing I admit, MS has produced quite a mystery of this.


    My bookmarks were restored fine. My last clean install was less than a week ago (Windows Insider)

    Hopefully when I clean install my favourites will be installed too as they were for you. I'll be backing them up just in case anyway
