300+tabs are gone

  • Didn't go online for a week. Opened opera today and.. nothing. No tabs, no history. Only cookies saved. I tryed to restore something with apps, but it did not help. All deleted links are alive at "History" file, but can there be an easier way to restore them?

  • Windows 10 and did Windows just update recently?

  • @burnout426 Win 7 and it has not been updated for these two days.

  • Which Opera version - 64.0.3417.54?

  • @repnop 63

    The only chance my be if you haven't closed Opera yet since you found it it was messed up. You can copy the "Last Session" file to a safe place, close Opera, delete "Current Session", rename "Last Session" to "Current Session" and put it in the profile folder. Then, if you're lucky, you might get them back. But, I'm doubting it.

  • You can install Session Buddy if you want. That'll help with saving and restoring sessions in the feature.

    Another thing you can do from time to time is to right-click on a tab and choose to save all open tabs to a speed dial folder. Then, if you export your bookmarks on opera://bookmarks, you'll even have a backup of that. It's not automatic though.

    That's weird. Do you have anything like CCleaner installed? I would imagine if it cleared things, it'd clear the actual content of the history file, but maybe not for some reason.

    Did you have an improper shutdown of Windows that you can remember?

    You might want to check your hard drive with Crystal Disk Info to make sure it's not going bad. There could be some corruption on your hard drive in general. You could load up a command prompt as administrator, run chkdsk /r, restart your compture and let it scan and repair anything it finds.

    You could check the URL opera://about in Opera to make sure the profile path is still correct too just for good measure.

    Do you use Opera Sync? Maybe something got messed up there.

    Besides those things, I'm not sure. It happens to some users. You're probably out of luck and just have to start opening the tabs you want again.

    Nothing like this.

    I have tried, but "Last Session" file was clean. I have some old files in "Session Storage". Can I use that?

    I tried to find the deleted file with handy recovery, but nothing.

    Quite possible.

    Nope.

    Don't think so, but don't know. You can search the net for a solution for this for Chrome and it should work in Opera too if you can find one.
