New PC and Old BIG Problem

  • I changed my laptop . Before doing that I have exported all bookmarks etc to file as suggested. Then I copied all files under the folder" Opera Stable", again as suggested in help file. Attention I never created an opera account.

    I installed opera to the new laptop and imported all the data from the file. Bookmarks etc ok, but there were no passwords.

    Copied "Opera Stable " too, no result.

    Created an account to sync . Yeah opera somehow realized that it is me and I could get bookmarks again . Passwords were also there but blocked (grey) . I synced but it asks for a "pass phrase " to be enable to sync pass words. It is silly, coz I haven't created an account before meaning I have no previous password or paraphrase .

    Regretting using Opera.

    Anyone can help ?

  • You shouldn't have copied some of the old files. The logins are encrypted to your user account (which is unique to that computer) and hence unreadable if copied to another computer. I'd recommend deleting your profile on the new computer and starting fresh, then using only Sync to get the data to the other machine.
