Description of the issue:
I have been using Brave on a Windows 10 HP desktop for over a year. Today, I turned on the machine, which came up with the message “Preparing Windows”, and then gave me a different home screen than normal. I brought up Brave, and found all my settings and history had been wiped by Windows: all stats on ads blocked, all bookmarks and history, all open tabs. It acted like I was a first-time user. Can I get any of my bookmarks and settings back?
This is not something I did by installing a Windows update. Windows did this on its own, and even removed Brave as my default browser.
