This describes it pretty well... I lost *all* my history, again! Also my open tabs. This really sucks, even when Opera is 'just' my video browser :(

Quote
I accidentally closed an instance of Opera with multiple tabs. There was another window with a couple of tabs running.

I have closed and restarted Opera in the hope it will retrieve the windows at startup (it usually asks if I want to continue from last time).

Is there a way I can retrieve my closed window with all the tabs? I cannot see them in the history either, probably because when I switched on my PC the Internet connection was down and the pages didn't load.

When you are in luck, these two tips might save you:

It did not save me :(

So I created a few batch scripts to end this problem once and for all!

Assuming C: is your %SystemDrive%...

Create folder: C:\CheCKDiSK\Opera.bat\
Create file 1: start_and_backup-Opera.12.bat
Edit with the following content:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
echo Starting backup first...
cd\
cd "%AppData%\Opera\Opera Next\sessions"

IF EXIST auto*.-- copy auto*.-- auto*.---
IF EXIST auto*.- copy auto*.- auto*.--
IF EXIST auto*.bak copy auto*.bak auto*.ba-
IF EXIST auto*.win copy auto*.win auto*.-



cd\
cd "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera Next"
opera.exe


cd\
cd "%AppData%\Opera\Opera Next\"
xcopy .\sessions\*.* .\sessions.bak\*.* /Y


exit

Create 2nd file: GO.bat
Edit with contents:
Code: [Select]
@echo off
echo
cd\
cd "C:\CheCKDiSK\Opera.bat"
%comspec% /c start "" /min "C:\CheCKDisk\Opera.bat\start_and_backup-Opera.12.bat"
exit

Create 3th file: shortcut to GO.bat.

This works:
Create shortcut to your batch file GO.bat
Open shortcut Properties
Edit the Target, change it to:
Code: [Select]
%windir%\System32\cmd.exe /C "C:\Checkdisk\Opera.bat\GO.bat"

You can now pin the .bat file (tested Windows 8.0 x64)

I do not know either what's going on with this browser, now it's slow as a snail. :thumbsdown:

By the way, I use it only for FB.


P.S.

I will probably soon uninstall Opera from all PCs.  :-\
