Retrieving tabs from crash

  • Is it possible to retrieve tabs that are lost from crash?
    Like looking through the full history or in some rooted folder?
    Thanks.

  • If nothing on History, look at Opera folder if exist a History_old or similar.


    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up Linux · Mac · Win

  • @zalex108 Can't find anything that resembles History_old in Opera folder. Does this folder exist for Opera on Android or is it for Windows? I'm trying to find it on Android.
    Cheers.

  • I've checked, and the file - if exists - should be History.bak, not _old.

  • @zalex108 Thanks for the help. I think I found it. For me, the file is named "History" without any extension.
    On my phone, it's about 2MB in size and located in "/data/data/com.opera.browser/app_opera" which can only be accessed on a rooted phone.
    It's a SQLite file so will need a SQLite database browser to open the file. Once done, there should be a table named "urls" which I exported as CSV. Opening it in Excel reveals my visited links history, about 3,500 urls in my case along with how many times each url was visited, and some other ids.
    I think this should be it, there wasn't anything else that resembled a browsing history when I searched through all the root folders. Hope this will help others looking for ways to access their lost browsing history.

  • Ok,

    I understood as you had no access to the History form the browser itself and want to recover it or at least check if the older one still existed.

    Perfect,
    you found the file and helping others also, very good! 👍😉
