Data Migration after HDD crash refuses to work

  • Hi,

    I had a HDD crash but managed to recover the opera profile from local and roaming without problems. So I installed Opera Beta again on the new system and copied over the needed files like login data, bookmarks and favorites. After opening Opera again, they don't appear for some reason. Just for testing purposes I copied over a skin and it worked. Am I missing something?

    I still got the recovery image, in case I need to restore some more files.


  • Login data will not work unless you actually cloned the original drive, but bookmarks and favorites should - if you copied them to the right folder (and overwrote the existing files). Keep in mind, you will need to copy both the *.db and *.db-journal files - if the journal is out of sync it presumes the database is corrupt.
