Windows 8 and stored backup info.

Recommended Posts

You know how on Windows 8 it keeps a backup of your favorites, tile placements, wallpaper, etc, is saved so when you get a new machine or format your hard drive it'll set all that stuff back to how you had it. What I'm wondering is where that is saved at because I want to delete it and start fresh. I think I found some kind of back up's on Skydeive that I deleted but when I formatted my hard drive it once again reverted back to how it was... Anybody know the whereabouts that info is stored at?

Yeah there's nothing in my Skydrive folder but it's still pulling info from somewhere... :/

I already did that a while back but not in that particular order and I didn't do that "Remove" deal on that page you sent. I'll try it out again when I get home tonight.

It's a hidden page. It doesn't show up on any of the SkyDrive menus for some reason.

It is odd they make no mention of that page... But I deleted my favorites from IE so will see if they randomly show back up and I'll report back tomorrow. :)

My only guess is that removing the sync settings can result in data loss, something support people try to avoid. :)
