Description of the issue:
I was doing a reinstall on my computer. I moved all the data files over to a separate hard drive that was connected to the PC. When installing Brave on a fresh windows install, the brave install managed to find the appdata folder I moved to the other HD and overwrote all the brave data there, including my old bookmarks and history.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- Get a computer with a fresh install and backed up data on another hard drive
- Install Brave
- Check the system file time on the old back up files, they will now be new and updated to around the time of the brave install.

Keep brave install to the chosen path, there is no reason at all to install or rewrite it in multiple locations. Wack.
