Import/Recover Passwords from Login Data

  • Hi!

    How do I go about importing the 'Login Data' file?

    I've installed Opera 26 on a new computer and copied my old 'Login Data'-file into the appropriate directory (C:\Users[user]\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable), yet Opera doesn't fill in passwords by itself. The usernames are saved and do appear.

    I've also tried extracting the passwords with Nirsoft's recovery tools, but that didn't work either.

    I didn't come across any solution using Google, so I'm asking here 😛

  • You can't copy Login Data files from one account to another or on a newly re/installed Windows, they are lost.
    Why? Login data of Opera is bound and encrypted by old Windows account seetings.
