Windows offers the option to stop using the Windows Recycle Bin and to have items deleted immediately. Maybe such option would also be a good solution for Opera's handling of deleted bookmarks.
Anything coming out of the trash on its own, [...]
could also be the idea for a nice trash movie by "The Asylum", I think.
@zalex108 @leocg Thanks guys for your help and replies. I don't know what else to do. I have tried everything. I even Rooted my phone coz of this. I guess all my data is gone, and gone for good! Why don't smartphones have Restore points just like computers??? I wonder..... Anyway, if you guys still have ideas on how i can get my bookmarks back, please keep me posted.
Opera Sync has an engine to delete duplicates, but don't know its rules and efficiency.
Try SuperSorter from Chrome Store and take care when deleting, keep a BackUp, even from the messed BK.file.

Thank you. I can't believe I haven't thought of that and it turns out the solution was that easy. It will take me some time to take the bookmarks out of folders they were thrown into, but at least I have them in browser now.
For now, I added a special button on the express panel. This address opens bookmarks in private mode:
Maybe someone knows the command, how to open bookmarks in a new tab?
I hope the developers will do something.
"Good news everyone" - it took a while, but the bookmarks DID reload.
They are recovered. Praise the Lord!
And thank you Opera!
While I am aware that exporting and SAVING bookmarks (MANUALLY) is (supposedly) possible using the Opera browser for desktop/laptop computers, my question is:
Is there a way to export (and save to an html file) bookmarks from any of Opera's mobile browsers?
Real back-up always needs redundancy.
If you are reading this Opera developers, please understand:
Opera IS a great browser, but so many things can go wrong.
A simple export-to-html would solve the data loss risk, in my humble opinion.
@sgunhouse I seem to have missed that step lol. Thank you very much, sgunhouse, this solves it. Kinda inelegant solution to me, though, because, why not just allow the complete deletion/erasure of the text, as does another browser? But I guess that's just how it goes. Thanks again!
