So after getting rid of opera following my last post, I read about Opera 60 and the QR code sync and thought maybe they had fixed the issue. So I reinstalled and signed up for new opera account.
sync.opera.com and the devices still shows open tabs between desktop and mobile devices, but not history.
The QR code thing is useless. I go to opera.com/connect on the desktop, scan the QR code with my phone, and the numbers don't match. After that, it only pulls up another QR code on my phone which it wants to me to scan. Um, I can't scan QR codes with my desktop. So the only option is to log in to an account.
So basically "history sync" is fake functionality. I guess it falls into the "fool me twice" category so shame on me.
If you are not able to sync data then you can try these steps:-
Restart backup sync: On your computer, click Backup and Sync Backup and Sync-Click More and then Quit Backup and Sync-Reopen Backup and Sync.
Reinstall back up sync: During the installation, click Yes when you’re asked to replace your current version or you can simply uninstall and then reinstall though control panel.
Disconnect and reconnect your account: On your computer, click Backup and Sync Backup and Sync.-Click Error - Google Drive folder is missing-Click Disconnect account-Sign in again.
You will be asked to choose a new location for the Google Drive folder.
