Bookmarks sync: duplicate bookmarks folders

  • 627/5000
    At home, I have 2 computers (Linux) and an Android tablet. The second (desktop) computer is the least used currently. I have about the same Opera bookmarks on both machines but I have reorganized them on my laptop (most often used) recently. For example, the folders have been renamed. Yesterday, I needed to work on my desktop computer and my bookmarks synchronized automatically. Unfortunately, they are duplicate now! (on the laptop). I deleted them but it is very possible that this will happen again next time. I know it's normal, but how can I prevent that without disconnecting?

    I answer myself: to repair (delete duplicated bookmarks) my bookmarks on my laptop:

    1. Start the 2 computers (but do not start Opera on the desktop)
    2. Export the laptop's bookmarks to the desktop computer for example with Dukto, usb key, email, etc....
    3. Disconnect the Internet (offline)
    4. Delete all current bookmarks (Desktop)
    5. Import the laptop's bookmarks into Opera (desktop)
    6. reconnect Internet & sync again (desktop)

    It's also possible to simply...

    1. Go offline
    2. delete all bookmarks on the desktop computer
      3 Go online and wait for synchronization
