Retrieve IE favorites from Edge

I just upgraded my Windows 7 to Windows 10 (because Microsoft gave me the opportunity to do it for free). I backed up my data right before the upgrade but - stupid me - I forgot to backup my Internet favorites. Now that I'm upgraded I've noticed my favorites are gone. Is there any way to retrieve them?

I go there and there are 2 folders: "Links" and "Links for United States." Both folders are empty.

I looked through every user account under "Windows.old." I still cannot find my favorites.

I am afraid there is no explanation for this. You could search the whole drive for *.url files.
