    The device backup on OneDrive would be for devices like tablets or Windows 10 Mobile phones instead of a PC.
    Thanks for clearing that up for me

    I can’t seem to get a clear answer, so I try here…

    My "Favorites" under Edge is messed up with many duplicates. Anyway, looking around to solve the issue has revealed the issue may be a corrupt data file under your Microsoft Account.

    That said, my question… If I delete my personal settings under my account, I assume a new set will be created once I enable Sync settings again? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes, but need to be sure. And hopefully solve my edge sync issues.

    Hello Drew, :)

    You would need to turn off your sync settings, then delete them.

    Next, fix your favorites in Microsoft Edge.

    Afterwards, I would wait a day or two before turning on your sync settings again to make sure everything had time to fully clear. This way they will hopefully be synced properly again.

    How long does it take to fully remove your info from your Microsoft account? I deleted my personal info 2 days ago. Yet today when I tried syncing again my Edge favorites are still hosed. Lots of double / triple folders with some blank and others with only half the files...

    Anyway I'm using a third party app (EdgeManager) to fix and sort Favorites but it would be nice to figure out why they keep getting hosed in the first place. Was hoping clearing my personal data would fix solve it.
