Profile folders to backup until Opera Link is running

  • I just uninstalled Opera, removed personal data, and reinstalled to eliminate a problem (problems seems to have gone away).
    I'd just like to not have to rebuild my profile from scratch. When I did this, I forgot to save my passwords.

    Now, I know to backup the following files from my profile:

    1. 2 favorites files
    2. 2 thumbnails files
    3. 2 login data files
    4. 2 web data files

    I suppose I could also save a list of my extensions as well.

    Is there anythying else I'm forgetting? I don't use Stash that much.

    I only want to copy what is absolutely necessary, as when this happens, I'm not sure what has gotten corrupt.

    The above would save my passwords, my speed dial folders, as well as the thumbnails for them.

    Being rather new to opera, I'm not sure. Is there any other file that I'd need to get the passwords working, etc.?

  • If you have custom searches you should backup the web data* files too.

  • Yes I do, good idea.

    I get it that all of these "journal" files should be backed up as well as the files without that in their name....

  • Excellent link, thanks.

  • Actually, I noted in Claudio's link, that only the .db files were listed, but not the journal files.

    Is it really necessary to copy the journal file, as well as the one with the shorter name?
