Anyone not using Windows Defender?

Windows settings generally sync by default, but some settings are only backed up, such as the list of installed applications on a device. Backup is for mobile devices only and currently not available for Enterprise State Roaming users. Backup uses a Microsoft account and stores the settings and application data into OneDrive.

If you turn on Other Windows settings, Windows also syncs some device settings (for things like printers and mouse options), File Explorer settings, and notification preferences. For a complete list of settings that Windows can sync, see Windows 10 roaming settings reference.
