Sync only syncs my bookmarks and never brings the other items over when I check the boxes

I just tried to do a Brave sync on my new computer and when you do a sync for the first time it defaults to only syncing bookmarks. So my bookmarks came over fine. But I want everything else as well (except open tabs). So I checked all the other boxes but nothing else seems to come over. I still do not have my extensions or history or anything besides my bookmarks. How do I force a sync of these items?

Hey skytbest sounds like it might be an issue with Brave, maybe a software issue. You can update brave by typing the following into the address bar “brave://settings/help” this will update without losing any of your data and may resolve your syncing issues. Also make sure Brave is uptodate on your devices!
