What happened with bookmarks.adr ?

  • I backed up my AppData Opera directories from Win7, both Local and Roaming, and when I installed fresh Win10, and tried to restore those directories into fresh installation of Opera, nothing happens.
    My saved passwords are all lost now also...

    I take a look and saw that Opera changed it's folder structure. Now I can't restore anything.

  • bookmarks.adr is from Opera 12 (based on Presto), more recent versions are based on Chromium. Opera should be able to import your old bookmarks, but you would need to have them setup as Opera 12 would have had them,

    If you had a more recent version installed on your old system, the file for bookmarks is now called Favorites.

    I've had latest version of Opera on WIn7, that I fully backed up with all the files. I've tried to restore my settings and other stuff on Wind10, but don't know how, none of them match, like literally I tried to restore Opera 12 to the latest version. Once again, I had latest Opera on Win7, and latest on Win10.

    I tried now to search my back up, and nowhere is any file called "Favorites". I'm so confused as to where is problem.

  • Also, where are passwords now saved ?

  • I just tried installing Opera 12, and importing bookmarks.adr, then exporting it into html, and of course it didn't restore all my previous bookmarks. I'm just curious where the hell are they, since I've made full back up.

  • Full backup of what folder though? Is there a file named Favorites there? Also paths between 7 and 10 are different - look at About Opera to see where you need to copy files to.
