Multiple instances of chrome user profile SingletonLock and SingletonCookie error.

I restarted chromebook after login profile settings, extensions and apps were missing like a new profile. The computer prompted for a passphrase, after doing a ¨reset sync¨ trying to remove passphrase all data on settings, apps and extensions were removed. It did not resync with all the previous data that was originally being used prior to doing ¨reset sync¨. Some research revealed the situation to be that the original user profile was not recognized therefore another was created in its place. Going into chrome-os terminal revealed this below. It shows multiple instances of user profiles. Two are are original and a third duplicate.

I believe this is the duplicate. ---> u-11d70123c6f2770fb077046f73f1a133bfeeb66e

and this is the user profile being duplicated ---> u-395c47cefe914112166e46d2cbb21e8b759397af
