not everything syncs

I have thousands of bookmarks that I sync across multiple computers. It works great, but I would say only 95% of the bookmarks actually sync. One computer has all the bookmarks, but occasionally my other computers do not sync with these. They are not in groups either. they are completely random in the order that they are missing. I try to sync again with all my computers, but they do not transfer.

I do understand that the system is probably not made for this many bookmarks to be used, but i can not fathom why only a small random sample is completely missing. If anyone can help me figure out how to get the rest to sync, I would be very grateful :)

HI bdsherman, I understand across a few computers connected to sync do not merge perfectly. This is something that the Sync Team is working on to improve. However, in the meantime I have done this to avoid this issue: make sure that all the organized bookmarks are in the same main folder (ie "Bookmarks Toolbar", "Bookmarks Menu", "Unsorted Bookmarks"). Currently the Mobile bookmarks will be separate.

Another tool I have found to be helpful are add ons that back up profiles.
