Opera data migration...

  • I am about to perform a new clean installation of Maverick (10.9.5) after I try High Sierra, which I do not expect to like (too much social media integration) and does not look like the Apple OS anymore (looks like a Windoze machine with a cheap Mac theme.. but I digress);
    The issue is how do I go about getting my Opera website and login information transferred from the old startup disk to the new install.. I do not see any option/ability to do this - even though every other browser on the planet provides this function......

  • Hi @siliconvoid , I think the easiest way to do this is by using the synchronization feature in Opera.

    Click "Opera -> Synchronize..." to start the process. After you've logged in it'll offer you an option to change the settings, do this so you can enable synchronizing your passwords as well. Then do the same on the new machine to get your data over.

    If it's only about bookmarks, you can export bookmarks from the Bookmark Manager. Click Bookmarks -> Bookmarks, Import / Export (at the bottom left), Export to get a file that you can then import in the other Opera.

  • I haven't finished the new install (10.9.5) to my new SSD yet, but I'm not sure how I will be able to 'sync' the two OS's when only one will be online a time - so will refer back when the time comes..

  • @siliconvoid Enable sync on the current/old one so you can get your data on the new one when it's ready.
