A way to download old Opera Link data?

  • Hello
    I reinstalled Windows today and when I wanted to resynchronize Opera 12, it didn't work then I found out that Opera Link just closed. Therefore I don't have a local copy of what was save in Opera Link.
    Is there a way to get the data back? Like download a package containing everything (especially notes and passwords). Or everything has already been deleted?

    Thanks

  • Is there a way to get the data back?

    Nope, Link has been closed.

    Or everything has already been deleted?

    Most probably.

    I can't believe this.
    If that is true, Opera team has acted as a hipster irresponsible startup again... There was many important data at my opera link account.

  • If that was so impossibly hard just to migrate old bookmarks to new sync system? Or at least make downloadable zip-archive containing html page with all opera link bookmarks?

    Well, they gave around 3 months for people to get their data. Also, being Link a sync service, that data should also be on people's devices.

    They gave people that option.

    I don't think it's possible to create an archive of something that no longer exists.

    I admit I was not checking the Opera news, never. Too bad.

    Thanks for the info anyway.

  • I was in the army and when I returned Opera team deleted all my stuff... Very bad news... I have reinstalled OS and can't get back my data... I can't belive that Opera team does not have backups.

  • Is there any way to get my data back? Zip/GZIP/SQL/any other format?

    Nope.

    They did have when the service was running. Once the service was closed, the backups have been deleted because they couldn't keep them.

  • Jeez. They not heard about email notification? Da f--k? All important passwords, bookmarks. Thank alot. In other world, developers make bridges that allow to migrate "from-to". First - stupid faves instead bookmarks. And now this. TOP1 browser fail. Now, officially, even the firefox retards MORE humane than Opera developers.

    They sent one.

  • They sent one.

    Here come the proofs... huh?

    I have never gotten email signed by Opera Software until yesterday, while trying to recover OperaLink password. And when new Opera is good at sync, while the 12.15 continue refuse to connect - i start google the problem. Damn, they have such an huge mail base... and they don't even send me a birthday card. Why not? Too complicate for them?

    I don't like Chrome, but there is no alternative (vivaldi is in family alpha condition). Opera betrayed all my expectations. It is bitter taste, you know?

    Well, i got one warning about the end of Link. Maybe your email info wasn't up to date back in the time when the message was sent?

    It's simply unnecessary, maybe. Also i am sure if they could do it legally speaking.

  • I just Downloaded and opened Opera to find Opera Link and all my data gone. Feeling betrayed.
    Instead of deleting my data, Opera could have migrated it to the new sync service.
    I don't think I'd use Opera again.

  • Instead of deleting my data, Opera could have migrated it to the new sync service.

    And they gave users the chance to do it before Link shutdown.

  • i didn't get any so-called notifications! w.t.f.. they just deleted all my data! ;_;
