    Hello rumlee,

    Other than updating your Windows and exporting afterwards, you could use the tutorial below to back up and restore your favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    I managed to backup the favorites by copying the datastore folder, but it does not backup the favorites bar in the top only the favorites in the right side.

    Did you use the method from below? It includes both favorites and favorites bar.
