Backup opera 26 passwords

  • Does anybody knows how to backup opera passwords for the latest releases because usually i backup the profile folder from "C:\Users\My User\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable" and when i restored them everything was OK.
    In the recent releases of opera when i backup the profile folder and reinstall opera after i reinstall the operating system on my laptop and set it whit the same user name and password opera does not recognize the files in which the passwords wore saved and backed up. I tried to change the settings from the permissions tab and ownership for the backed up profile but every time opera does not recognize the files in which the passwords are saved. I also disable from the experiments menu the prompt asking for the system password when trying to display passwords. Nothing works...

    Dose anybody have an idea on what could go wrong? Why can i transfer passwords to the same version of opera after installing the OS?

    Sorry for my English.. :)

  • Passworddata files cant be saved by backup, they are bound/encrypted related to the Windows account of Opera user used before(!).

    Sorry to say, you have to use a external password manager.
