How to restore old state of Speed Dials?

  • I accidentally wiped all of my Speed Dials when changing something in Xmarks bookmarks sync extension.

    Does Opera keep some form of bookmarks backup by itself which I can use?
    If not, what file do I need to restore from my old manual backup for this?

    Opera sync for bookmarks was disabled so that won't do anything for me.

  • Try the bookmarks ones.

    Doesn't wok.
    First, I tried to restore Bookmarks.bak file - removed Bookmarks and renamed Bookmarks.bak to Bookmarks - nothing happened, maybe it was overwritten too.

    Next, I tried my old profile.
    I confirmed that my old profile does still have bookmarks by launching it in a different copy of Opera.
    Then I transferred Bookmarks and Bookmarks.bak from old profile to new one - nothing happens, still zero Speed Dials on new Opera I am using currently.

    My conclusion - Bookmarks file does not hold Speed Dials.

  • It does if its a recent version of Opera. If you are running an old version its different.

  • Which version of Opera are you using?

    As said, Speed Dial is part of bookmarks since a while ago so if you are using the latest version then they should be in the bookmarks file.

    If you open the bookmarks file in a text editor and look for "speeddial" you shoudl find something like "speedDial": { and your speed dials will be under it.

    'other speed dials' in Bookmarks, the whole folder.
    Just got a new laptop, and wondering if I'll gotta move them one by one, or can I sync or move the whole folder to the 'speed dial' page?
