Opera Backup Professional
Migrating data from one computer to another can be a tedious process, so its advisable to create backups for your most often used applications as often as possible. This way, you will be able to make the transition a bit faster and ensure that all your data is safely moved to the newer location.
Since Internet browser are probably some of the if not the most utilized programs on our computers, making a copy of their data is paramount. In case you are an Opera user, there are some dedicated tools that can help you with the necessary data export process.
One of those utilities goes by the name of Opera Backup Professional and aims to provide all the necessary functions for a hassle-free transfer of your personalized settings to another instance of the browser. This software doesn't require installation and as soon as it is deployed, it will try and detect the installation folder of Opera onto your system.
In some cases, like those of portable or 64-bit editions of the web browser, the program may fail to identify the location. Nonetheless, you have the possibility to manually navigate to the installation directory and from there on Opera Backup Professional will be able to do its job.
An important mention which has to be made is that at this stage of development the application does not support versions greater than 12, so the newly emerging editions of Opera cannot be backed up with this tool.
After the detection is complete, you can make inside the main window the necessary selections for profile and mail settings that you wish to keep. The last step before starting the operation is to choose the output location of the backup file.
Overall, except for the fact that it only supports older versions of Opera, the utility manages to do a very good job, especially since it can also be used to restore the saved configurations.
