  • Hello!
    I just reinstalled windows and want to copy my old cookies, i know that they are located at AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\ and there is some cookies files, one of them is pretty big (2mb) im pretty sure this is my old cookies.
    But simple way of replacing this file dose not work at all.
    I even copied whole folder, and got my extentions, configurations, all typed adreses, scripts back. Looks like everything recovered BUT cookies.

    Im using Opera 28.0.1750.51 latest i think.
    Windows 8.1 64x
    Please help!

  • Looks like opera actually use this file as cookies file, its save my new cookies in my old cookies file.

  • bump

  • I guess you can create a database query to do it but i have no idea how you can do that.

  • Cookies are stored under "Cookies". Usually just copying the file is enough for you to have your old cookies in a new install.

  • Yes, thats how it worked for me last time but, im even somehow managed to copy "cookies4" from opera 12.xx to new opera :wizard:
    Im gonna try installing some previous versions and see how it works.

  • I just dont know anymore :faint:
    I was trying 25 26 27 versions nothing worked, and then i just started opera 12 to get some cookies from cookies manager and put them in opera 28 using cookies extension, but i didnt do anything and just started opera 28 and all my cookies somehow restored. :wizard:
    Same thing happened to me last time.

  • You were trying to use Opera Presto's cookie file with Opera Blink, that's why it wasn't working.

    To use your old cookies in new Opera you need to import your data from the old one.
