Sounds to me like the sync.opera.com website, maybe? If he hasn't used it in 2 years they might have sent an email asking whether he wanted them to delete his data, maybe? If so - and if he hadn't signed in - then if he had ignored the email it would have been deleted. Since he didn't - unless he wants to keep the Bookmarks - he could just click the link to reset Sync data.
