  • Hi, having recently converted to Opera, I've used it for a few weeks and now have everything set up, all my bookmarks arranged and sorted, a couple of extensions installed and so on. It's working great and far better than my previous browser (Maxthon, which I'd used for years if anyone's interested).

    Anyway, I need to find out what I need to back up/save should I wish to do a clean re-installation of Windows. The two that I've found on this forum are:

    C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    C:\Users\Michael\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable

    Now, is there anything else at all that I should save and just copy back over after a PC cleanout? Like I say, I have Opera working sweetly now, so it'd be a bit annoying if I missed something obvious.



  • Backing up the profile folder (appdata\roaming\opera software\opera stable) should be enough.

  • password file won't be recognize in new OS reasons
    so if you like to keep your passwords, better to sync them

  • Good idea! Synced now!
