Exporting all settings, options, bookmarks, speed dial and such

  • Hi folks,
    so I got new Computer and my old one is still around, so a nice and neat backup / export - import is due.
    As I have some different versions on this machine it would be good to know how to export and import these things to the new 33 Opera.
    Old Versions I have 25.0xx , 29.xx , 30.xx (the one I am using right now) and a 31.xx which is kind of a failed install.

    Something vital to know, if I would begin importing things from the 25 version onward, and there are conflicting or different settings made in the newer versions, would they override the old?

    And, for future reference, how to export / import / backup all important 33 Versions things?

    Cheers Julian

  • Go to Menu > About Opera, take note of the path to profile folder, do a backup of that folder.

  • Hi Leocg,
    thanks again for a fast and good reply.

    you mean this folder?
    C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable

    and that would also be the things to tell the new opera to import?

    Yes.

    Not sure if i got what you mean. That folder is where Opera stores your data; If you need to recover an installation you can just replace the contents in the folder by the ones backuped.

  • Ah ok :)
    My question was on the basis, that these data had to be imported into Opera to work with different / newer versions.
    But as I just override the "blank" new installation with it, there is no need to import it.

    Another question, in this folder, I only find one installation of Opera. Where would I find the others and old versions data?

    Unless you do a stand-alone install, all your Opera installations will share the same profile folder.
