Manual copy of data

  • I do not have time for this and I do not even want to check myself, so I prefer to ask. I currently have Windows 7. If I copied the contents of the folders:
    C:\Users[system profile]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    C:\Users[system profile]\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    I could copy them to the new Opera installation if I:

    • stayed on the same computer but for example he wanted to re-install Opera or install Opera Portable
    • I would change the computer with the installation of Windows 10.

    In both (actually in three) cases, I would have fully operational new installations of the Opera containing:

    • history of pages viewed
    • information about downloaded files
    • browser settings
    • state of plugins (enabled, disabled, scripts, their settings, etc.) - I am using the Opera extensions, but also from the Chrome Web Store

    I think yes, but I prefer to make sure Can I copy both folders, for example on a pendrive, to have a backup of the above mentioned Opera data?

  • In your case I think it would be better to backup the whole profile folder.

  • @leocg only:
    C:\Users[system profile]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    without
    C:\Users\Michal\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    why? What exactly does the cache contain?

  • Just backing up the one at roaming should be enough.
