Windows 10 wouldn't boot. Had to reinstall and need some help with restoring my Opera.

  • My Windows 10 had a spaz attack and refused to boot. After trying to fix it for a few hours I gave up, backed up anything important and wiped my C drive, reinstalled windows 10.

    I had to do this before at some point and managed to restore my Opera exactly back the way it was by backing up the Opera Software folder in appdata, I can't remember how I did it though.

    I really don't want to lose all my bookmarks and such. Does anyone know of a way to use the old files I have to restore how my Opera was before I reinstalled Windows 10?

    Thanks in advance, any help is appreciated.

  • Also I should note that I put the Opera Software into the new appdata folder but didn't have any success so far in seeing my old bookmarks or anything.

  • Go to Menu > About Opera, take note of the path to Profile folder and make sure that you have copied the backuped files into that folder.
