The problem is not just with Chrome and the real issue is that any Windows Update can result in the loss of your favourties. This is still happening following the change to use a database to store faourites. A related isssue is the synchonisation between devices which creates duplicate folders.
Thank you for providing this information about the issue. We have confirmed the problem, and we are working on a solution for a future build of Edge. We are presently tracking this issue as a duplicate of an existing internal bug report. We look forward to additional feedback you may have on how we can improve Microsoft Edge.
