Reset Sync Flag in Brave Windows 10


So stupidly I didn’t read the issue completely in regards to sync not working on Windows 10 and the Brave browser, I have since then and am stuck with Brave opening and closing only. Is there a way to reset Sync back to default and not lose data of my profile.

I’m looking for what options I have available at this moment in regards to the issue I caused by being stupid and not thoroughly looking at the issue of why sync was disabled.

Thanks for any assistance.

Did you ever get this fixed? Other people are having the same problem.

After some fiddling around, I figured out you can get back in by deleting the Sync Data and Sync Extension Settings folders in Users/yourusername/AppData/Local/BraveSoftware/UserData/Default

I was then able to recreate my sync keys and it’s working now. No crashes, and I’m syncing among two PCs and one Android device.

While trying to fix my issue I completely lost my profile so I had to redo a bunch of stuff but thank you for the help.

It was my own fault for not looking into it a bit better. I made a mistake with copying my profile where I had half my profile and the new one that caused my profile to be fubar. I’ve made a new profile since then it doesn’t have everything I had in the profile before but it works.
