history/bookmark recovery

  • Hello Readers,

    I am in sticky waters. I formatted a PC without first exporting its bookmarks. Now there is bad data loss.

    I ran good recovery software, I can now see the opera Stable directory.

    I see a file called 'Visited Links. '. According to this page :
    https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/

    ..it holds a list of URLS that was viewed already by opera - That sounds like enough history for me!

    Is there enough data in there for me to get at least my general History back?

    How could I view it or any other file that may help?

    Also - the file in the opera install directory called "bookmarks" only had some generic references.
