    iCloud Creating Duplicate Bookmarks - Due to Win 8.1 Sync?

    I am running iCloud on multiple PC's. Everything was fine until I had it running on two 8.1 PC's, then I started having problems.

    In total, iCloud was running on one Win 7 Pro PC and two Windows 8.1 PC's. My theory is that the two Windows 8.1 PC's were syncing via iCloud and Skydrive (or Onedrive) which is set up by default. But they were able to read each other's settings okay. But Win 7 doesn't have the same sync settings, so the bookmarks were being written in 8.1 and then multiplying in Win 7.

    I'm not sure, but this is my theory. Running on all Win 7 is okay. Running on all Win 8.1 seems okay. But combining the two OS's with iCloud seems to cause some problems.

    Anyone have any ideas on this?

    The only thing I would look at is to only use one cloud service if that is your suspect.

    OneDrive Integration in Windows 8.1 - Enable or Disable

    I am not hinting to use icloud but that is simple to stop by just removing the application. If you chose to use icloud this is how to disable onedrive.

I burned them onto blank cd. When I then look, it says 29mb's were used up on the cd. How can that be? If one mb equals a thousand kb's, it should show I used up less than one mb. I tried to look up how many kb's the favorites folder was, but the size was blank. But when I had 130 favorites,...
