Hi fgawinson
i have not seen it myself, but have seen mentioned a folder being created in favourites containing the urls of the tabs that were set aside at the time of the update.

edge chromium does not have the tab set aside feature, but you may find collections useful, with collections you can save text and image snippets as well as websites.

you can make the suggestion to the development team from within edge chromium (Alt+Shift+I) or using the windows feedback hub (winkey+F)

Most (although not all) users are able to uninstall edge chromium which automatically reinstates legacy edge as it was.
Note, I don't know how long legacy edge will remain before we are forced to update.

settings -> apps -> apps & features
click on microsoft edge and click the uninstall button.

in edge chromium, enter the following into the address bar and press enter
edge://flags/#edge-legacy-import

select enabled from the dropdown to the right of "edge legacy import"
click the restart button in the bottom right corner to restart edge chromium

once restarted, click the ellipsis (...) and select favourites then import

you should see an option to import from "microsoft edge legacy" in the dropdown
select "favourites or bookmarks" and anything else you wish to recover from the previous version and click import

once completed you can (if you wish) turn off the #edge-legacy-import flag

look in favourites -> other favourites -> set aside tabs
you should see folders for each group for tabs that were set aside

if that does not resolve the issue

uninstall edge chromium, this will reinstate legacy edge with all your favourites and set aside tabs.
windows settings -> apps -> apps & features
click on microsoft edge
click the uninstall button.
legacy edge will be restored automatically

the open tabs may no longer be available or there weren't any open tabs at the time of the update.

are the tabs that were set aside now in the favourites -> other favourites -> set aside tabs?

if not continue with the uninstall of edge chromium, which will restore legacy edge

Before I have a lot of open tabs, but it just shown error "Open tabs failed to import". I just remember that time before update Microsoft Edge, I just close the browser then update started.

There is no any set aside tabs success to import. My favorites & other favorites folder is empty.

Now my question is maybe is better I do System Restore before uninstall edge chromium?

i haven't tried a system restore myself to resolve this but i have resolved it by uninstalling Edge chromium.

creating a restore point before uninstalling isn't necessary as chromium can be reinstalled from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge

They just made a completely redundant application, now I have no reason to use edge. On top of that, I just lost so many very important tabs! I feel like never using windows again and switching to a Mac computer (and commit blasphemy) I'm so so f***ing p***** right now, I don't think I will ever forgive windows for this. WHY WOULD YOU REMOVE THE SET ASIDE TABS? THAT FEATURE WAS THE ONLY REASON I HAD TO USE EDGE! P.S. The developer's response about going and importing a bunch of **** from legacy edge and doing this and that, it's all too much work I'm not even gonna fool with it. You have to wonder what's going through these developers minds when they ruin perfectly good applications with an update that only removes features instead of making features better... The only reason I can think of is that you're just doing anything to make it look like they are a valuable part of the team hence justifying why they even have a job because they can do updates with a much smaller staff...

Your set aside tabs should be hiding inside the 'other favourites' folder... i don't know who thought of that, because inside that folder is a 'tabs set aside', why not have that at the top level so that at least some people can find it without fuss?
