Tabs from previous PC not showing after sync

  • Hi all,

    My windows 10 (which was an upgrade over windows 8.1) had crashed and I had reinstalled windows 10 home recently.

    The tabs from my other windows microsoft account called (AK-PC) were showing for a few days after it synced my previous data from my Opera account.However the tab folder from the sidebar does not show the tabs from AK-PC any more.

    So on the side there were 2 categories in the tab folder...tabs from "this computer" and tabs from AK-PC. I had 18 windows with multiple tabs open in AK-PC.

    Can anyone help me find my tabs from my previous account?

    I have tried enabling and disabling opera didn't work

    I am currently using Opera 47.0.2631.55

  • Those tabs are still opened? If not then they should not be listed in the tabs page/menu.

    If you don't have a backup of your old Opera profile folder then your tabs are probably gone.

  • Hi Leo..thanks for replying...

    No those tabs from my previous windows were showing for a little while..but now I have 7 windows open in my current windows.

    Those tabs were not open..they were showing because they were part of the earlier data from synchonization.

  • Only opened tabs are synchronized, that's why you don't see them anymore.

  • You can always pin the relevant tabs that you want to keep, that way you won't close them by accident. And as Leo mentioned, tabs have to be opened for sync to get them.
