opera backups

Recommended Posts

I don't use opera myself but wondered if this was of interest to any users

 

I don't use it anymore either, I'm a 100% Firefox user now after Firetune seems to really be working with the new version.

 

Even with an Opera backup it has the ability with new versions to mess up settings which is one thing I started to not like about it, that and it won't even use my adblocking software anymore.

Theres a good backup extension for Firefox too which worked like a dream when I recently had to do a complete reinstall due to corrupt profile - https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2109/

I have a WinRAR backup profile set to auto-magically backup all the Firefox settings on my system to a .rar archive. That's how I used to backup Opera's settings too, works like a charm. A batch file would work (albeit all the copying info has to be entered spot-on perfect) to copy the files to a mirrored folder with the same directory structure or to an external medium like memory card, USB key, floppy diskette, etc.

 

Edit:

I just installed the Firefox Extension Backup Extension ("FEBE") and whoa, it kicks my backup method straight in the balls being that it can backup the whole profile, and even better restore it too. Thanks for the link to that!

No probs, helped me no end with recent reinstall so thought I'd pass it on (first time I've tested the restore ability of it and it worked a treat)
