Work area - all data lost after restart

  • I have had loads of opened tabs, most of them 'locked/attached' (I am using the German version of Opera and am not sure how this option is called in the English version). When I read about these work areas I thought they might be a great solution for me to get some structure in all of my tabs.
    Then one of the most recent updates prompted for a restart which I of course did - but now all my tabs are lost. Every work area is empty and all the tabs I kept in the main window are gone too. I had been using all this many tabs before and they all 'survived' restarts of Opera and my Windows 10 x64-PC ...
    I did not read of any requirements (not deleting cookies on every new start, scripting active or else). So what is the reason behind this problem? Was it necessary to get an Opera-account first to backup such settings or why was everything lost?

    Short: What do I have to do to prevent such a problem?

    Thank you!
