Lost 15 year of saved passwords .-.

  • So... yeah that just happened. I cleared Cache and other stuff using Ctrl + shift + del. and every single one of my passwords are gone. its not syncing back and I don't know what to do. I would literally kill someone if I don't get it back somehow. This was the last straw for me. I'll just go back to FireFox cuz I can use it on my phone too...(its impossible to use opera on android and have both sync same account, pass, bookmarks, etc.)
    inb4 why didn't you save it on another place/location/software.
    My FF acc prob have most of it. but since I started using opera I just didn't bother saving it to firefox too. its been some years now so...

  • @seikushim One of the options in Delete Private Data is to delete passwords - you need to make sure which options are selected before you tell it to go ahead.

    You could check in your profile folder to see if the backup copy was cleared too. If it looks like it contains meaningful data, copy it somewhere safe. The file is named "Login Data" for the original, the backup probably adds ".bak" or ".old". After closing Opera you may be able to replace the original with the backup.

    If there is no such file, the only other hope would be if you have another computer that hasn't connected to Sync since you deleted everything. Delete Private Data isn't supposed to be something that can be undone.
