If you upgraded to Opera 102 or later version and all your personal browsing data such as bookmarks, history, cache, settings, extensions, password, etc deleted automatically, this article will help you in recovering and restoring the lost data again.

Recently Opera team released version 102 for their popular Opera web browser. When the automatic update rolled out to all Opera users, many people started complaining about a weird and annoying issue. After upgrading to Opera 102 version, the web browser started with a blank or empty profile without any previous browsing data.

All browsing data was automatically wiped out and users were unable to find their bookmarks, extensions, etc. The lost browsing data includes following items:
  • Bookmarks
  • History
  • Cache
  • Extensions or add-ons
  • Settings
  • Speed Dials
  • Saved tabs
  • Sidebar configuration
  • Saved passwords, cards, etc
  • All customized settings and changes made by the user previously
Opera was starting with a brand new or fresh user profile just like it launches when you install it for the first time. Users were forced to make all their customized changes, add bookmarks and install extensions again.
