Is there a way to recover my lost tabs?

  • At around 12:30 pm GMT 7+ today, I have 2 opera windows open, one with dozens of tabs and the other opening a youtube video. I closed the one with dozens of tabs, and then the one with the youtube video. Then I relaunch opera to just to see that all those dozens of tabs are ALL gone, just the youtube video is opening. I tried Ctrl + Shift + T, nothing opened. I panicked. I restart my laptop, hoping that it will work. It doesn't. I search for solutions, and it turns out I Could Have Restored Them If I Didn't Closed Opera.

    I desperately download Recuva to restore deleted files. There was a bit of hope. So I let it search for every single deleted file inside C:\Users\MyName\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera GX Stable\Sessions. Only 2 Files from Yesterday came out in extremely poor shape and contain almost nothing. This is weird, because I closed opera a few times this morning before I lost those tabs, so it should have saved it right? Please help.

    I don't have windows restore point enabled.

    If there was anything I could do to possibly recover my tabs, Please tell me. Opera's tabs that were retained from previous sessions don't save in History. If there were anything, anyway, any files, even deleted, that could possibly saved information about the tabs that I lost, please help. I'm desperate.

  • @hflfadsa There could have been a chance to recover the tabs if you hadn't restart the computer. Since it was done, the info about last session and last tabs were updated, overriding any data on your tabs.

    You can try clicking on Search in Tabs icon or use menu > history, but it may not work due to what I said.
