How to restore passwords after reinstalling windows?

  • I've tried to copy only Login Data file, and tried to copy all opera stable directory in appdata/roaming, but passwords don't work, only logins autofills. Please help. (win 7 and opera 21 before and after reinstalling).

  • Passwords are encrypted using your OS account details and because of that, the file can'y be used by another user and/or on another install of the OS.

  • That REALLY SUCKS :(

  • Live and learn, we've all been there. I would recommend an external password managing program like KeePass. It can store password for many things, not just stuff in your browser, and allows you to export your password database for easy backing up.
