The Synch option is located in Settings, can't remember right now if it's under Users but your Google sign in email address is in a column on the right at the very top. Click on that and you'll see the on/off synch switch.
There are 4 options of things you want to or not synch. They are all grayed out in mine and when I switch to Synch On, it does not hold it but reverts to Off as soon as I leave the page.
Because I am soon to receive the replacement N10, I plan to experiment doing a factory reset and stating all over to see if it can now synch. But I wonder if 4.2 was the culprit as I was able to synch with 4.1 before I did the upgrade.
But why did my synched bookmarks disappear?
Okay, same thing just happened to me and here is what i did to fix it and get my bookmarks back.
I went into the settings > apps > all and cleared the cache for chrome, force stopped it and disabled it.
Then I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the same section (because disabled apps are put last), enabled it & force stopped it again. When I launched it again it had me re-sign in yo the app. All of my folders were there but no bookmarks. I backed out to the root of the bookmarks and went back in and they were all there.
