    Has anyone else had all their favourites erased from Internet Explorer using the latest build? I've left feedback and at least one other person has the same problem.

    My favourites are still available in Edge but there doesn't seem to be a way to import from Edge to IE. I've tried the Import and export option on IE but it seems as though Bookmarks.htm has been erased.

    I don't mind using Edge but I'd rather use IE because of Adblocker support.

    Is there a way to restore favourites to IE as I don't really want to have to re-populate the list manually?

    Yes I've got the same problem. It's removed them from all my devices too. Even ones without this latest build. Any idea how to get them back as I can't work that one out. I don't want to have to sort it all manually. I've just checked edge and they appear to the there which is good. Looking at the favorites folder in documents the links are all there but IE11 is not displaying them. I'm sure they were after the upgrade but I can't be 100% sure. Think I'll back them up quick in case something zaps them. IE11 is only showing the folder structure under favorites. Guess it's a bug?

    Lost most of mine also. Used a program found on the net called AM-Deadlink which got most back but not all.

    I lost all of mine also. Luckily I had a backup so I restored them. Later on they disappeared again.

    It's Microsoft making us switch to Edge! Doesn't matter if it's not done yet. ;) It's happing to me too. Luckily I copied my favorites from my tablet to OneDrive and just replace them every time they go away on both machines. What a dumb bug.

    I experienced this today as well, but not all my IE favs are gone. But a lot of folders in the subtree is now empty. Did a restore to one of my synced PCs, but it doesn't seem to sync out to the rest again. Have MS turned off IE sync? I have a mix of production builds and fast lane preview builds on my different PCs that is supposed to sync
